One Response to The Impact of the Virtual Astronomical Observatory

  1. Needless to say, I disagree on good portions of the above. Case in point the Registry has THOUSANDS of records that point to dead/unreliable links, standards have been developed in isolation from the computer science community, etc. The results are obvious: it was an experiment (started and funded well before 2010) that was only marginally successful. The archives will now have to pick up some of the pieces and hopefully rebuild some interfaces and applications from the ground up listening to their user base this time. This should have perhaps been their role from the start.
