tommorris: Elizabeth Pisani talks about data sharing in public health and the challenges to creating a culture of open data sharing.
tommorris: She notes the differences between genomic research which now has a culture of immediate data sharing, and other sciences where data can sit unused in a filing cabinet for years.
tommorris: Sharing data immediately has huge benefits in public health: Pisani gives the example of having done highly intrusive research (on HIV/AIDS patients) and then not sharing it with the scientific community.
tommorris: Even if we don't get an open Facebook, this Linked Data stuff might get us an AIDS vaccine. Which would be awesome.
