This looks interesting - they stress that it is not just big science - so
there is opportunity to stress tools that deal with the long tail as well

The Science Program at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation is excited to
announce a request for ideas in the domain of Data Intensive Science.  This
RFI is open now, here: *http://dis.ideascale.com* <http://dis.ideascale.com>

The increasing volume and complexity of scientific data are overwhelming
current research practices, and create additional barriers to an already
challenged science infrastructure, workforce and funding landscape.  Many
agencies and foundations are looking at ways to best combat the growing wave
of challenges caused by today’s data deluge, and the Gordon and Betty Moore
Foundation’s RFI on Data Intensive Science is intended to add to this
growing body of thinking.  This RFI is being conducted in the open and for
the benefit of anyone looking to navigate these areas.  The Science Program
will review the ideas, comments and votes generated as we conduct our
strategic planning processes this year.

We encourage you and your colleagues to participate in this RFI through the
middle of September, 2011.  Please note that this is not a proposal
solicitation, and there is no promise of funding in this area. However, we
encourage you to add your suggestions and comments here *
http://dis.ideascale.com* <http://dis.ideascale.com> .  Your contributions
will help the Science Program find areas of investment that can make the
most difference in the domain of Data Intensive Science.

If you would like more information on this request for ideas, please visit
the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s web site at *
