Web 2.0-based social informatics data grid
The Social Informatics Data Grid (SIDGrid) is a new cyberinfrastructure designed to transform how social and behavioral scientists collect and annotate data, collaborate and share data, and analyze and mine large data repositories. The major design goals for the SIDGrid are to integrate those commonly used social and behavior science tools and provide researchers an easy-to-use web interface to run these data intensive applications efficiently on TeraGrid resources. SIDGrid is also a collaborative environment where scientists can share experimental data and analysis results with their team members. OpenSocial, a social networking framework initiated by Google, provides a Web 2.0 approach to integration of web applications and building collaborative cyber environments. Using OpenSocial, we present a new application framework for SIDGrid that enables scientists to define their analysis tools in XML and generate application gadgets as a Web 2.0 interface for running analytical workflows ...
