Hi, This is just a brief status update for people on the netcdf-hdf mailing list. Yesterday Ed Hartnett accepted a Software Engineer position at Unidata, and he will be able to start in July. Ed has previous experience as a developer and data manager with HDF4 and netCDF. Robert Lee, a computer science student at Carnegie Mellon, joined Unidata as a student assistant a couple of weeks ago, and has been spinning up on netCDF and HDF5 since then. I'm very happy to have both Ed and Robert working with us on the project. I've been participating in our once-every-three-years Unidata User Workshop all week, so haven't had much time to devote to the project, but I did submit the necessary "Quad Chart" to NASA. This is a single PowerPoint slide that NASA's Earth Science Technology Office (ESTO) uses to communicate/market key aspects of the project, including description, objectives, approach, schedule, and a visual or graphic summarizing the project. That's a lot to try to convey in one slide, so it necessarily misses some of the subtleties, but here's a PDF version, in case you're curious what these look like: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/russ/status/aist/quad1.pdf As you can see, I'm no graphic artist, and chose not to use the NASA funds to hire one ... :-). Soon we'll be setting up a project web site and planning a project kick-off meeting with NCSA folks. Stay tuned for more details ... --Russ _____________________________________________________________________ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program russ@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://my.unidata.ucar.edu
