Terabytes of open-source science data – hosted by Google

Interesting story @ Wired Science about open source science data & Google. I wonder when and if there will be medical open source hardware in there –

Sources at Google have disclosed that the humble domain, http://research.google.com will soon provide a home for terabytes of open-source scientific datasets. The storage will be free to scientists and access to the data will be free for all. The project, known as Palimpsest and previewed to the scientific community at the Science Foo camp at the Googleplex last August, missed its original launch date this week, but will debut soon.

Building on the company’s acquisition of the data visualization technology, Trendalyzer, from the oft-lauded, TED presenting Gapminder team, Google will also be offering algorithms for the examination and probing of the information. The new site will have YouTube-style annotating and commenting features.

    Oh noes… Youtube ‘style’ commenting system? You mean snarky and often wrong comments about how everything is ‘fake’?

    Great. Nothing ever gets published because there is no way to prove that anything is real.
