Hi Jenny!

I really appreciate your activities. Some kind of "repository" for open science tools and videos would be a great idea for providing a starting point for those who want to know about open science and maybe even get involved. At the moment it's quite some work to get a picture of what open science is all about and where to begin when you want to start opening up your own research.

I just put some short thoughts into the pad concerning the open science tools section. Hope this might be of any interest/use.

> Thanks to Stefan and Vincent for joining me in updating the website this morning, you can check our progress here http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-webhack
> In summary:
> We now have videos from researchers explaining open science on the home page, which will soon be organised into a much more aesthetically pleasing gallery format, at which point we'll be requesting further contributions.
> Please let us know your top open science video content on the web so we can present a working group curated list of lectures/debates that people should watch (there's a lot of content out there now, which is great, but what have been your favourite talks?)
> There is a space for suggestions on http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-webhack
> Stefan has made a start on a community calendar to which anyone can add open science events using a simple form, feature suggestions and offers of technical assistance much appreciated.
> Vincent will be working on adding content to the open science tools page http://science.okfn.org/tools-for-open-science/
> If you'd be willing to help out or even just give us URLs to tool lists you already know about, let us know in the pad http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-webhack
> Other than some minor content tweaking, that's about where we reached. We'll try and run another session in a few weeks but do keep adding your suggestions for content features and tools to the pad, especially if you'd be able to offer a little help in building or maintaining a page.
