All -

Yesterday was World Taxonomist Appreciation Day so naturally I asked,
"How many active taxonomists are there"? And secondarily, "Where are
they & what do they work on?"

Here's the barebones result: http://taxonomists.shorthouse.net/

Not there? Get yourself an ORCID at https://orcid.org, add a keyword
"taxonomist" or "taxonomy" and then link your works. Once a day I poll
ORCID and fire the titles of your publications through the Global
Names Recognition and Discovery service, http://gnrd.globalnames.org/
to glean your taxa of expertise.

Perhaps by next March 19 we can give this a more professional home,
have a collective celebration, and use it for something bigger.
