Thanks @serahrono, I'll get to work on that Field Guide translation. ;)
One more thing (not directly related to the other):
I'm part of the DBnomics project which is similar to Datahub.io, but just for economics. Basically, we store datasets on git repos, first as the provider publish them, then converted in a format that is not unlike Tabular Data Package (described here).
  1. Would DBnomics-packaged data useful to you?
  2. Could the "DBnomics data model" become a new Data Package profile? Would that be even useful to anyone?

This is very exciting - i actually produced first version of data package spec back in 2006-2007 for openeconomics.net project when I was a full-time economist!

BTW have you seen the core data effort https://datahub.io/docs/core-data - a lot of the datasets are community curated.

Would DBnomics-packaged data useful to you?

Yes!

Could the "DBnomics data model" become a new Data Package profile? Would that be even useful to anyone?

Certainly think so!

@johanricher if you'd like to talk more about DBnomics, DataHub etc let me know - it sounds really interesting.

And there's also a dedicated gitter channel for DataHub stuff http://gitter.im/datahubio/chat

Hi Rufus, yes the Core Data idea is exactly the kind of thing we want to contribute to, but we weren't ready until now. :) Actually Thomas Brand who's an economist and head of the project told me he talked with you about 2 years ago when it was still called Widukind, we came a long way since then! :)
Would you be available for a chat with us to talk about all that?
