Where I am, on the threshold of entering my next project of study, I was impressed by the need to record, somehow, the everyday items that constitute the practicalities of the project: how data are “necessary to evaluate research results, and to reconstruct the events and processes leading to them”.

There is an overlap here with what I think I’d like to study in the project, which is simply “Where do ideas come from?” It’d be nice to be able to look back over the developing project, and track the origins of the ideas which are finally part of the story.

A quick look at the CSIRO data access just made me feel sad about government cuts. The Hungry Microbiome is a good example of understandable metadata around a video, especially with transcript.
