Hello everyone,
Thanks Simon for the precisions, I totally agree with you.
Creating a metadata repository could be “feasible” and without doubts
very useful.
Regarding Ronald concerns, we should agree to a minimum quantity of
information contained in the metadata in order to strongly simplify the
data-search process, ideally, get to know contact coodinates to the data
Regarding all the currently existent repositories, I think a
repository-map is another feasible idea.
As Carlos Luis said, “this is no longer time for theories…” Here
is a short and interesting
reading, the response from Harry Crane to John Ioannidis’s article “*A
fiasco in the making …” .*I point out this because I think it will be
good to also think in measures to prevent delaying in critical response and
desensitising the public to the real risk we face.
