Approach to the Mozilla Science Lab [UPDATE#1 - Response from Kaitlin Thaney]

on .

Thanks to a tip-off in our forum from one of our followers, Sanjeev, We thought appropriate to approach the Mozilla Foundation on their new initiative.


Here is the text we are sending. Hopefully we can work together and leverage our experience with you guys and their reach and programming prowess to take this approach up a notch or two.

UPDATE#1 - Response from Kaitlin Thaney

We have a response from the key representative from Mozilla Science Lab. Reading between the lines, they are not in the position to support us yet and are referencing old initiatives before the advent of modern collaborative tools and that do not seam to have the LIVE element we are pioneering with you, but we aim to build on what we have built together and in time, they may be able to support our on-going effort with resources and other tools.

Here is the response

We have had feedback from the Mozilla Science Lab key representative giving us further pointers to other players working on related approaches.

Perhaps Sanjeev you can approach some of these people and introduce them to our project and modus operandi.

Great !

I'll push these out in the stream as they happen. Spreading awareness and fun at the same time.

Thanks loads Sanjeev,

I think significant is the December 12 run and the 2nd S&G cell run.

Then of course, the current experiments which are soon to be joined by a MEGA Constantan (10s of meters) high temp (500ºC) and high pressure 10bar test. The flow calorimeter in the US, multiple Celani wires, more S&G.... Phew!

And then there is the powder cells, Mizuno and a few more surprises.

Along with preparing for the conference - we have so much to do tight now as you can see, so your help is greatly appreciated.

Sure, why not. I'll post an introduction there and then major happenings also.

Thanks Sanjeev for tip off for the G+

Would you like to represent our work there as you should have a good understanding of what we are trying to achieve and the manner of our endeavour.

Great to see that you have already taken another step in the direction of open and live science. Your experience will surely benefit them.

There is an Open science community on G+ with 7000 members (they all seem to be very serious). May be you'd like to connect there:

The old system of doing science has become outdated, corrupted and is in clutches of money. The paper publishing and closed peer review way has led to a monopolistic system, discouraging innovation. Its the same effect like in software industry.

Open science is the way of future, there is no doubt in my mind about this. We will soon see fundamental breakthroughs in science all happening online with real time access to data.
