For your reading pleasure. Thanks to Anne Schultz for sharing. Yet another thing to worry about as the planet warms.

Please join us for this "Open Access Success Story" Conversation with Dr. Hahnel, founder of Figshare. 
We are fortunate to have Dr. Hahnel offering his insights via video chat to an audience at University of New Mexico University Libraries Waters Room. The topic will be driven by the audience and Dr. Hahnel's conversation, and may include: What are some highly cited or reused data sets on figshare that demonstrate the power of #opendata ?  What is driving users to #figshare  and what technical and cultural barriers are hindering them? How does figshare partner with institutional repositories?

Because Dr. Hahnel will be at a remote site, we plan on connecting with him via video chat to the Waters Room in Zimmerman Library. We will broadcast that via the Hangout on Air. The Hangout on Air will have about a 40 second delay. Please feel free to post questions ahead of time!

Thanks for sharing this. The benefits of semantic annotation as a complement to "brute force" analysis and classification can't be overstated. Providing less ambiguous signals of meaning will accelerate knowledge integration into larger systems for knowledge management. 
Interesting read from PeerJ author, Alex Clark. "If your data remains as words and arbitrary diagrams, it will remain just an isolated data point that will only ever be read by a handful of other humans. If it is machine readable, it will be able to influence every relevant scientific decision that follows." #opendata  +PeerJ

This is why I like the XKCD style in iPython.

There's some good stuff here. 
I have been reading and collecting data science resources for years (back in the days when BI / BA was all the rage). While there are lots of resources on the net, not all are great and some are even misleading.
Now, I have updated my collection and placed them into a neat Trello list, open to all.

Some nice examples of interesting data (open in most cases BTW) combined with innovative visualizations. 
Here are top big data projects that might interest you !!

Thanks to +Mark Parsons and the +ESIP Federation's Preservation and Stewardship group for highlighting this great example of maintaining knowledge of processing steps, derived products, and the valuable lessons that can be learned through data reuse and assessment.
