Yeah, this isn’t an April fool. It’s Sunday, and I am working. Today is the kick-off meeting for the CARMEN project, and tomorrow we move into the British Neurosciences Association meeting. I’ve never been to a neurosciences meeting so I am looking forward to it. We’ve spent the last few days getting a demo working for it, which has been fairly stressful — as demos tend to be — but we got it working in the end.

One of the recurrent themes, that I’ve heard before within CARMEN, is that people are more than willing to give us their data; if so, it will run counter of many of my expectations. In general, getting anyone to provide data and sane metadata is a hard task; I really hope this works straight-forwardly within CARMEN, and that I am proved wrong.
