Vibrant data: another example of novel synthesis

This project is cool, vibrantdata.org. Eric Berlow is one of the founders and is an ecologist with publications on food webs, interactions, alpine meadows, and the marine intertidal. This new project is bring together big data, designers, and Intel researchers to model and understand the dadta ecosystem they inhabit. Click on the research part and you will see the scope of data. Similar to the Ocean Health Index post below, this is another really nice example of ecological principles blending with social data. Here, they are using collective human input and network analysis to identify a few ‘under-nourished’ Grand Challenges for democratizing data. Wow, how can we help?
