Lynn Yarmey and I had a nice conversation with Stephanie Wright this morning. Stephanie leads the Science Labs at Mozilla, and we were discussing potential areas of collaboration. One area that came up was education. Mozilla has an active program on educating people on open collaboration, including a mentorship program and an ongoing series of workshops.There focus is on open collaboration broadly, but it relates closely to the work y'all have been doing around data management and related education.
Mozilla is going to try and send a person or two to the Plenary in Barcelona, but I note that Stephanie is also conducting a workshop at the Research Data Access & Preservation Summit (RDAP) in Seattle a couple weeks after the Plenary (https://www.asis.org/rdap/program-2017/). Is anyone from this group planning to attend RDAP? This would be a good opportunity to explore further collaboration or support for our respective initiatives.
