InterNano – Information Resources for the NanoManufacturing Community
http://www.internano.org/

InterNano is an information resource for the nanomanufacturing community. It is a service of the National Nanomanufacturing Network. InterNano supports the information needs of the nanomanufacturing community by bringing together resources about the advances in applications, devices, metrology, and materials that will facilitate the commercial development and/or marketable application of nanotechnology. InterNano both aggregates existing resources related to nanomanufacturing and creates original commentary on those resources, including news highlights, review and feature articles, and topical assessments of the current state of practice in nanomanufacturing. InterNano is not a source of original scientific research. Editorial oversight is provided by the National Nanomanufacturing Network. In addition, InterNano aims to facilitate the work of the NNN by generating a virtual community of nanomanufacturing researchers and practitioners through outreach and information sharing and to advance nanomanufacturing by partnering for the open sharing and analysis of data. Areas of coverage include:

•nanomanufacturing processes
•tools for nanomanufacturing
•nanoscale objects and nanostructured materials
•nanomanufacturing characterization techniques
•environmental, health and safety considerations for nanomanfuacturing
•social and economic implications of nanomanufacturing
•informatics and standards for nanomanufacturing
•commercialization, regulation and intellectual property

Biomat.net – The Biomaterials Network
http://www.biomat.net/

The “Biomaterials Resources on the Internet WebPage” was created in May 1998 and has considerably changed since then. In February 2000 it has become the Biomaterials Network, changing from the original collection of WWW links to an interactive source of information, where users can actively participate and communicate with each other. Membership to Biomat.net is free, and members can browse all of Biomat.net without charge. Since 2002, Biomat.net was selected for Current Web Contents, from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). At present, Biomat.net also manages the contents and upgrades de website of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB), as a service provider. Biomat.net is aimed at linking the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering community worldwide. This site provides updated news in the field, delivered through a monthly newsletter, and also a collection of selected internet links related to Biomaterials Science and Tissue Engineering, as well as relevant links to biomedical engineering, biology, medicine and health sciences in general. Biomat.net facilities additionally include a glossary of related terms, a discussion forum, a job exchange section, and the Directory of members, where research expertise can be searched.

Photo Meta Data Project

September 29, 2010

Photo Meta Data Project
http://www.photometadata.org/

Everyone involved with digital images shares the challenge of tracking and managing their rapidly expanding collections. Images with embedded information about their ownership and content are easier to find and harder to misuse. Metadata is the key to better protecting copyrights, promoting licensing, improving workflow, and managing assets. Unfortunately, it is under-used and under-supported. In partnership with the Library of Congress, the Stock Artists Alliance created the Photo Metadata Project to promote industry wide use of standardized photo metadata in every digital file. Through live events and online resources, we are committed to helping make this happen. Photographers need to embed photo metadata in their digital files, while stock distributors and end users need to take steps to ensure that this information will be preserved downstream as those files are processed, published online, copied, reproduced, licensed and archived. The mission of the SAA Photo Metadata Project is to help promote these best practices by investigating and reporting on the issues, and then developing online resources and educational events — demonstrating that embedding metadata in digital photos benefits us all and is easy to do. This initiative is made possible by the generous support of the Library of Congress, our Project Partners, a dedicated group of project contributors, and the commitment of the Stock Artists Alliance.

PeerIndex – Discover the Authorities and Opinion Formers On a Given Topic
http://www.peerindex.net/

PeerIndex is a web technology company that is algorithmically mapping out the social web. The way we see it, the social web now allows everyone endless possibilities in discovering new information on people, places, and subjects. We believe that the traditional established authorities and experts – journalists, academics, are now joined by a range of interested and capable amateurs and professionals. As this locus of authority shifts, many new authorities emerge. PeerIndex wants to become the standard that identifies, ranks, and scores these authorities — and help them benefit from the social capital they have built up. PeerIndex was founded in 2009 by Azeem Azhar, an Internet entrepreneur and investor who previously worked at the Economist and Guardian; Bill Emmott, former editor-in-chief of The Economist; and Ditlev Schwanenflugel, formerly of McKinsey & Co.

USPTO Data Visualization Center

USPTO Data Visualization Center
http://www.uspto.gov/dashboards/patents/main.dashxml

“Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) launched a beta version of the USPTO Data Visualization Center. This tool will give the public access to important data covering USPTO patent operations in a convenient dashboard format. The patents dashboard provides more refined pendency information than was previously available, as well as other critical indicators such as the number of applications in the backlog, production, staffing and more. This information will help the entire intellectual property (IP) community to better understand the USPTO’s processes, and enable applicants to make more informed decisions about their applications, especially as the USPTO develops more opportunities for applicants to control the timing at which their applications are examined. The new dashboard, which will be updated monthly, will also be used internally by the USPTO to analyze and improve its examination process and to track the effectiveness of its improvement efforts. The USPTO also plans to add relevant data to track progress in other areas such as Trademarks and worksharing with global IP offices.” Thanks to Sabrina I. Pacifici (http://www.bespacific.com/).
