Data Management Education (Chris Eaker, - instructing researchers and students in sound data management practices is important for helping keep data usable over the long term. I'd like to have a discussion about this at CURATEcamp 2012. The Data Information Literacy project at Purdue has developed 12 core topics that should be included in a data management curriculum. We can begin by discussing these and then look at other curricula already developed and see how they compare.

  • Tablets + old newspapers/ magazines == Awesomeness

Curated data as API

  • Should we be thinking of ways to make data available to web apps as well as for download. Linked data is the long term solution, but anything more leightweight we could do now?
