"Managing Digital Research Objects in an Expanding Science Ecosystem: 2017 Conference Summary"

Joshua Borycz and Bonnie Carroll have published "Managing Digital Research Objects in an Expanding Science Ecosystem: 2017 Conference Summary" in Data Science Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

Digital research objects are packets of information that scientists can use to organize and store their data. There are currently many different methods in use for optimizing digital objects for research purposes. These methods have been applied to many scientific disciplines but differ in architecture and approach. The goals of this joint digital research object (DRO) conference were to discuss the challenge of characterizing DROs at scale in volume and over time and possible organizing principles that might connect current DRO architectures. One of the primary challenges concerns convincing scientists that these tools and practices will actually make the research process easier and more fruitful. This conference included work from CENDI, the National Federal STI Managers Group, the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS), the Research Data Alliance (RDA), and the National Academy of Science (NAS).

License Change at Major Social Media Site for Photographers: "500px Nukes 1M+ Creative Commons Photos"

Michael Zhang has published "500px Nukes 1M+ Creative Commons Photos" in PetaPixel.

Here's an excerpt:

But overnight, all of the CC photos that have been uploaded since 2012 have been nuked from 500px. Users can no longer choose a CC license during uploading, search for CC photos, or download them.

Jason Scott reports on Twitter that the photos have been archived in the Internet Archives' Wayback Machine:

3 terabytes of Creative Commons photos going into the Wayback machine thanks to the efforts of dozens of volunteers slamming from NO warning and going for 48 hours straight. Amazing work, everyone. It's going to take a while to understand exactly what we got.

Note that the Wayback Machine is only searchable by site URL.

The Creative Commons photos have not been deleted; however, the Creative Commons license has been. Consequently, the user has no way to know about the existing Creative Commons licensing terms. On logon today, 500px gives the user the option of opting out of commercial distribution by Getty Images.
