Quoting Deborah Paul <dpaul at fsu.edu>:
> We're writing to invite you to create a short screen-cast (5 - 8
> minutes max) showing us your leading-edge field-data collecting
* so many techniques are invented and used and maybe tucked into a
'methods' section somewhere, but not adequately shared around - put us
on the mailing list for this, please. We've hung some stuff about our
field techniques up at http://pinicola.ca/thenaturejournal.htm
"theNatureJournal system" http://pinicola.ca/g2007a.htm "How to do a
bridge" http://pinicola.ca/cldm.htm "Canadian library of drifted
material" and other posts at http://pinicola.ca/publicat.htm
Maybe this workshop could lead to a wiki with a framework of taxa on
which contributors could hang methods
> We're planning a Field to Database Workshop
> <https://www.idigbio.org/wiki/index.php/Field_to_Database> that will
> take place March 9 - 12 in Gainesville Florida. This workshop
> focuses on leading-edge and current trends in best practices for
> collecting data (ecological, specimen, genomic, audio, video,
> images) in the field.
> * How do you plan what data to collect in the field?
> * How do your field-data collecting practices support data that's
> perfect for reproducible science?
> * How do you collect data in the field?
> * Do you use forms? Websites? What about apps? Data standards (Darwin
> Core, etc.)?
> * How do you get the data from your forms and apps into a database?
> * How do you share field data and field metadata with your colleagues
> to support discoverability?
> Please show us what methods, software and templates you use. We'll
> post these videos to the iDigBio website, along with any materials
> or website links you suggest.
> We plan to have workshop participants watch these, using a
> flipped-classroom approach. Then, on day 2 of our workshop, we plan
> a session where we invite you to join us remotely, if it fits in
> your schedule and time zone, for a discussion of the various methods
> the students will have seen on day one, including your videos. In
> this way, we can focus on a robust discussion, with time for
> questions and insights from the various parties involved.
> Thank you very much for considering this and making it possible for
> us to spread our net wider to include more examples for the students.
> Please send all videos and materials to me by Thursday, March 5th.
> In anticipation,

"[The] two fundamental steps of scientific thought - the conjecture
and refutation of Popper - have little place in the usual conception
of intelligence. If something is to be dismissed as inadequate, it is
surely not Darwin [, whose] works manifest the activity of a mind
seeking for wisdom, a value which conventional philosophy has largely
abandoned." Ghiselen, 1969. Triumph of the Darwinian Method, p 237.
