⇒ Astroinformatics on the Web
This is the second entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore how astronomers use the Web to share data, some of standards and technologies they have developed, and bit about the history of their development.
⇒ GeoJSON to the Rescue (or not)!
This is the fourth entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore GeoJSON as an alternate approach to geospatial scientific data.
⇒ Geospatial Data and KML
This is the third entry in my series on my PhD dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Web. In this entry, we will explore KML and how can (or can't) be used to disseminate geospatial scientific data.
⇒ An Introduction to My PhD Research
This is the start of a series of journal entries about my recently completed dissertation titled Enabling Scientific Data on the Webat the [School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh](http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/informatics/) . As I wait to defend my dissertation (July?), I'm going to try to explain what I've been up to these past four years. My hope is that not only will people understand what I've been doing, but also it will help me find new ways of explaining it other than a rather long document that few will actually read cover-to-cover.

I'm reminded of the good things and that life will just continue. In one of his more salient and conscious moments he said to me, as I was pondering my pending trip to Edinburgh, to continue my PhD research and “Go and get the damn thing done!”
