Letter of Support - Jim and Timlynn's GoFundMe Campaign
To Prospective Donors to Jim and Timlynn's Campaign to Attend TimeMachine19,
As Head of the Pattern Recognition Lab of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and a Member of the Executive Team of the Time Machine Project, I support Jim and Timlynn's commitment to attend the Time Machine 2019 conference this October in Dresden. Unfortunately, financial support is also limited at our institution. Still, I admire Jim and Timlynn's dedication in their support of the Time Machine Project.
I have known Jim and Timlynn since June of 2018 when they introduced themselves via email describing their magazine ground-truth research and expressing interest in involvement in the Time Machine Project. Since then, we have engaged in frequent communication that has deepened my appreciation for their innovative research and advocacy on behalf of Citizen Scientists as members of the research community. I consider the work of Citizen Scientist fundamen

A CIDOC-CRM Based Metamodel of Softalk Magazine

Author: Jim Salmons for FactMiners.org
Date: 27 October 2014
Revision: 0.1

This Neo4j GraphGist is an exploration of grounding the FactMiners Fact Cloud metamodel of Softalk Magazine on the ISO Standard CIDOC-CRM (Conceptual Reference Model) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). Complete information can be found on the official CIDOC-CRM website. Taken from the home page of the CIDOC-CRM web site:

The Minimal CIDOC CRM-Compatible Form in Neo4j

GraphGist by: Jim Salmons, Project Director - The Softalk Apple Project and the FactMiners Ecosystem

There is no substantive human-readable content here. I dumped my Neo4j database representing the minimal CIDOC CRM-Compatible Form model elements and I am wrapping them here with just enough GraphGist document structure so that Structr can import this dataset and auto-generate its Schema. I anticipate some lengthy scope notes and examples sections of the source document, Definition of the CIDOC CRM Conceptual Reference Model, may muck up Structr’s GraphGist importer. YO!

A Simple Meta-Data Model for a Graph Database (Ver. 1.1)

Original by: Curt Gardner v1.0, 30-Sep-2013

Forked by: Jim Salmons v1.1, 06-Dec-2013 - Same basic document but leveraging Neo4j 2.x labels and tweaking queries accordingly. The most dramatic result of this is the elimination of the need for the explicit 'Admin' elements and all things related to the 'owns' relationship.

Note
Curt’s explanatory comments and diagrams from the 1.0 version of this GG do NOT sync with the refactoring I’ve implemented here. You can mentally replace Curt’s explicit 'ownership-related sets of nodes' idiom with subsets based on 2.0’s new label feature. That’s what you’ll see in the tweaked queries. The most visible result of using this important new feature in Neo4j is that the queries from Curt’s original GG produce results that are ONLY about the structure of the data to be contained in the "regular" database. There are no more 'Admin' nodes nor 'owns' relationships that are really elements specific to the embedded metam
You can’t perform that action at this time.
