DCC Forum: Comment on Conference best paper

There is a Conference theme over on the DCC Forum. However, despite its RSS feed, it doesn't appear to be quite in the blogosphere, so I thought I would post some quotes from it here. Bridget Robinson announced the best paper selection (it gets a star spot in the programme):
"The title of best peer-reviewed paper has been awarded to "Digital Data Practises and the Long Term Ecological Research Programme" by Helena Karasti (Department of Information Processing, University of Oulu in Finland), Karen S Baker (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, USA) and Katharina Schleidt (Department of Data and Diagnoses, Umweltbundesant, Austria)."
Angus Whyte commented:
"Can't make it to Washington, but looking forward to seeing this paper. I'm familiar with the 'Enriching the Notion of Data Curation in e-Science' paper by the same authors (plus Eija Halkola) in the journal Computer Supported Cooperative Work last year [*}. (doi:10.1007/s10606-006-9023-2); and some of Helena Karasti's previous work to integrate ethnographic and participatory design methods in CSCW. Recently colleagues and I at DCC began case studies for the SCARP project, which I hope can draw lessons from their work to document "the inter-related and continuously changing nature of technology, data care, and science conduct" as they put it.
* Volume 15, Number 4 / August, 2006

If there are any coments here I will re-post a summary back on the Forum!
