User:Steven J. Koch/2011 Cyberinfrastructure Day
Our lab committed to "open science" -> open notebook science, open data, open access publishing
- our data example maybe will show up ok: windows media player
- Our readme file: http://openwetware.org/wiki/Koch_Lab:Data/MT_Gliding_Assay_Readme_File
- Recent example from teaching: http://figshare.com/figures/index.php/MTC2011Gliding
- Google search microtubule D2O
- So the data are there but not very usable, discoverable, or reliably archived
- This is what Rob has been working on and looks like it's succeeding!
Is it safe? Smart? Required?
- scooping: defense by publication
- Tenure: Physics chair extraordinarily supportive both in teaching and in our lab
- Two Ph.D. students from lab so far, both graduated with professional networks and both getting job offers right away. Neither has a "traditional" publication yet.

Open Data Has Value, (usually?) unexpected
- John Callow's Millikan oil drop experiment http://openwetware.org/wiki/User:John_Callow/Notebook/Junior_Lab/Final_Formal_Report
- Contact with Michael Nielsen http://friendfeed.com/stevekoch/4d252b4e/john-callow-fun-mathematical-analysis-of
- Deutsch, Brunner, Saxton preprint on arxiv: http://arxiv.org/abs/1101.2225
It's one thing to want to make data open, very difficult to do it well

- Smart people say, "public domain" (CC0) most valuable license
