Sustainable Science Communication Conference: UCSB, May 14, 2015
Most of this conference will be looking at how scientists communicate with others. My talk will look at how scientists are forging new forums to share their scientific know-how and acquire a whole new range of knowledge that will enable them to take advantage of emergent open-science content (open data, open source software, open access publications, and open reviews). By leveraging the social multipliers of networked collaboration, new communities-of-purpose will add real value to shared content, and real reasons to share more often. In the geoscience community, The Federation of Earth Science Information partners is designed to build, test, and finally implement novel modes of communication and forums for sharing. Across disciplines and around the planet, the Research Data Alliance is hoping to build and share data stewardship information. What does open-science look like, and how will it transform the geosciences? These are the questions science is tackling today. Some day soon, perhaps science will actually know what science knows.
