In an alternate reality I am sure I would be a librarian.
With ongoing linkrot and degradation of old Internet content, in particular reference rot from academic literature, it can be hard to find digital content even from as recently as 10 years ago.
It follows that academics now should be their own library curator, to preserve their own outputs and reference materials.
In this section I catalogue some of the content and software I have rescued, archived or rediscovered.
Where textual content is made available from this website they are redistributed under an Open Access license such as Creative Commons, in other cases I refer to Zenodo, Internet Archive and institutional repositories.
- Practical Provenance (2013–2022) – an archived blog about PROV and PAV provenance modelling. Archived from https://practicalprovenance.wordpress.com/
- soiland.no software (2004-2007) – because we didn’t have GitHub back then. forgetSQL somehow ended up in Debian. Source-code previously in SVN at http://s11.no/i/ is archived in GitHub stain/scrapbook [archived]
- Remember SGML (2004)
- HTML på en ryddig måte - forståelse og bruk (2000) – My first Norwegian tutorial on HTML4 - taught in 2000 and still accessible on http://www.nvg.org/nvg/kurs/html/
- Sequence learning in a model of the basal ganglia (2007) – Source code and presentation for Master thesis https://doi.org/11250/251073
Wf4Ever project Wf4Ever was a research object funded by EU Framework 7 to investigate how scientific workflows and their data could be better preserved for reproducibility, reuse and resiliance against workflow decay.
What exactly happened to LSID? What exactly happened to LSID? It was a technically sound approach it would seem and one whose failure we would do well to learn more from.
PROV released as W3C Recommendations The Provenance Working Group was chartered to develop a framework for interchanging provenance on the Web. The Working Group has now published the PROV Family of Documents as W3C Recommendations, along with corresponding supporting notes. You can find a complete list of the documents in the PROV Overview Note. PROV enables one to represent and interchange provenance information using widely available formats such as RDF and XML. In addition, it provides definitions for accessing provenance information, validating it, and mapping to Dublin Core.
W3C PROV Implementations: Preliminary Analysis By Khalid Belhajjame, syndicated from https://khalidbelhajjame.wordpress.com/2013/04/04/w3c-prov-implementations/ In the beginning of December 2012, the W3C Provenance Working Group issued a call for implementations. As of February the 25th 2013, 64 PROV implementations were reported to the W3C Provenance Working Group. These implementations took different forms ranging from stand alone applications (30), to reusable frameworks and libraries (10), to services hosted by third parties (9), to vocabularies (21), and constraints validation modules (3).
Recording authorship, curation and digital creation with the PAV ontology PAV is a lightweight ontology for tracking Provenance, Authoring and Versioning. PAV supplies terms for distinguishing between the different roles of the agents contributing content in current web based systems: contributors, authors, curators and digital artifact creators. The ontology also provides terms for tracking provenance of digital entities that are published on the web and then accessed, transformed and consumed.
Tutorial on the W3C PROV family of specifications Posted by Khalid Belhajjame Provenance, a form of structured metadata designed to record the origin or source of information, can be instrumental in deciding whether information is to be trusted, how it can be integrated with other diverse information sources, and how to establish attribution of information to authors throughout its history. The PROV set of specifications, produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is designed to promote the publication of provenance information on the Web, and offers a basis for interoperability across diverse provenance management systems.
