At the Summit, I will be holding a discussion on how two communities (open source and scientific) can work together in creating new tools to aid in the study of global climate change. Looking at both the Belmont Forum and IGFA laundry lists of capabilities for the “Knowledge Hub”. I will be tyeing in my new startup that I hope will be at the juncture of these efforts in the hardware space.
