Implementing DOIs for Research Data, Natasha Simons (D-Lib Vol 18, nr 5/6)
"Research is increasingly collaborative and global in nature, and efforts to manage the vast amounts of research data generated daily require global solutions. The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) system provides a means of persistent identification of research data collections and datasets that is global, standardised and widely used. The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) partnered with DataCite to offer a DOI minting service. At Griffith University, implementing DOIs raised governance questions common to other institutions that encouraged discussion and collaboration."

Demystifying the data interview [Reference Services Review]
Carlson, J. (2012). Demystifying the data interview: developing a foundation for reference librarians to talk with researchers about their data. Reference Services Review, 40(1), 7-23.

As libraries become more involved in curating research data, reference librarians will need to be trained in conducting data interviews with researchers to better understand their data and associated needs. This article seeks to identify and provide definitions for the basic terms and concepts of data curation for librarians to properly frame and carry out a data interview using the Data Curation Profiles (DCP) Toolkit. The DCP Toolkit is a semi-structured interview designed to assist librarians in identifying the data curation needs of researchers. The components of the DCP Toolkit were analyzed to determine the base level of knowledge needed for librarians to conduct effective data interviews. Specific concepts, definitions, and examples were sought through a review of articles, case studies, practiti

Data sharing site, with persistent ID's. Interesting angle: positions itself as a tool to publish negative data that otherwise would not be published, in the name of better science. This bypasses the hesitation scientists have over publishing their 'good' data. Enforces CC licenses.

Still in beta. No info on the business model.

Human genomes as email attachments. [Bioinformatics. 2009] - PubMed result
"The inherent structure of genome data allows for more efficient lossless compression than can be obtained through the use of generic compression programs. We apply a series of techniques to James Watson's genome that in combination reduce it to a mere 4MB, small enough to be sent as an email attachment." Original size of the genome 3.1Gb (3169831Kb), max lossless compression 4Mb (4101Kb)!

Search engines and the production of academic knowledge [International Journal of Cultural Studies]
Abstract: "This article argues that search engines in general, and Google Scholar in particular, have become significant co-producers of academic knowledge. Knowledge is not simply conveyed to users, but is co-produced by search engines’ ranking systems and profiling systems, none of which are open to the rules of transparency, relevance and privacy in a manner known from library scholarship in the public domain. Inexperienced users tend to trust proprietary engines as neutral mediators of knowledge and are commonly ignorant of how meta-data enable engine operators to interpret collective profiles of groups of searchers. (...) "
