Code for Science and Society

Brian M Hamlin

Dear Board of Directors, OSGeo Advocates, all -

  while reading the Wikimedia Foundation Labs news, I noticed that OpenRefine (built by Google long ago) has been adapted to ingest lists of data to WikiData / Wikipedia with some forms and tutorials; following a link or two shows:

  https://codeforscience.org/  

We empower communities to work together and build innovative technology for the public good.

   It seems likely that the goals of CodeForScience dot org, and OSGeo dot org, may have some overlap.  OpenRefine is useful and mature, which gives some hints about what else might be included in the CodeForScience project. Next steps, Board contact?


  best regards from "no-more-stores"  Berkeley, California

Dear Brian,

indeed, we at OSGeo are an open community, that umbrellas several
communites, that are all related to the topic "geospatial".

As our name says, we are an open community, that is also open for
contacts and interactions with other open communities.

OSGeo is more a do-ocracy, so it is not up to the board, to initiate all
the activities, that OSgeo supports. We as the board come in play, when
it comes to some kind of financial support, MoU's or similar activities.

To be honest, for me it is not completely clear, what your intention is.
Maybe one idea would be, if you adress your request to the OSGeo
discuss-list [1].
On this list you will get in touch with active OSGeo members, that might
be interested to pick up the ball.

If there are any questions, don't hesitate asking me/my board colleagues,

Till
