Reflections on yesterday's global VIVO call

The technology worked remarkably well from an audio point of view, usually the biggest challenge, and we had some good discussion on how to share code, making upgrading  customized features to new versions easier, internationalization efforts, the opportunities for cloud services, and a new VIVO initiative in the Netherlands.

Please bring any questions or further thoughts for discussion, since not everyone present had a chance to speak.

Notable implementation and development list traffic

  • (Josh at JHU) Persistent error in Pubmed Harvest even when additional memory allocated and using smaller batch sizes
  • (Chinese Academy) Questions about aligning with journal names used for Map of Science – thanks to Tim & Michaleen for clarifying the need to align journal names with the list of 25,000 used by the visualization library
    • and which Windows server 2008 OS is better for VIVO, 32-bit or 64-bit?
  • (Giuseppe at St.George/Univ. London) Why are inverse properties not being inferred when ingesting research areas from an XML file?
