Data standards

Via Nodalpoint: Nature Biotechnology are seeking comments on a set of prospective manuscripts aimed at improving life science data standards. This is important so go there, read, leave comments.

I think the usability of the consultation web pages could be greatly improved. How about a discussion forum and some RSS feeds, rather than posting PDFs of papers and comments on a weekly basis? “Check back when my feed reader says so” is so much easier than remembering to “check back from time to time”.
