Subject Fwd: Advice on inviting Apache insight to NSF SI2 meeting?
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2012 15:13:26 GMT
Anyone able to help the NSF out at a meeting in DC in Jan?

See below for more info.

On a personal note I've noticed an increased, and genuine, interest in how
to improve the impact of publicly funded research outputs from the NSF in
the last couple of years. We are even seeing important components turning
up in the Incubator. I hope we can send someone able to help them
understand how we do things around here. It's your (US) tax dollars going
into this work.

I'd normally do this myself but I have a clash on these dates.

Let me know privately if you are interested and I'll help you/them figure
out who the best fit is.

Hi Ross,

I'm organizing a panel at an upcoming meeting for the PIs of all the
projects funded by the SI2 funding program at the NSF (SI2, or SI^2, is the
main Scientific Software funding program at the moment).

The panel is going to focus on Software Impact, and I'd like to have
someone who can inject an understanding of the importance of community,
including Incubator considerations such as non-salaried developers etc.
 We're also considering adopting the DOAP way of describing the projects
and their infrastructure as a way of helping projects and the program
overall catalogue their activities.

The meeting is in DC in January Jan 17 and half-day 18th.  Does anyone from
Apache come to mind (including yourself) that would be relevant either with
experience in Incubation, or from the DOAP/catalogue.  Do you think your
experience with SIMAL would be relevant here, might you be interested?

Best regards,
James Howison
