Years ago when had more time, I bought the domain w/ dreams of building a website where politicians could be held accountable for SMART goals / have a "lifetime trust" rating. I'm never going to build it - anyone want the domain (free) before I delete it?

Hi Claire - yes, I've registered and can log into my account! But most of the features don't work, and I can't contact you.

the whole site seems to be down for me and has been for 5 minutes now - is this a site-wide issue?

SQLite has a load of awesome features needed if you have lots of complex metadata: great! But too many people use it as a key-value store.

For simple metadata, JSON can be parsed in FORTRAN88, edited in Notepad, fulltext OS search...

Our mistake: not thinking *what is the simplest system*? HDF5+SQLite have cool features but massive drawbacks

Though, unlike HDF5, definitely use-cases I can think of (not ours) where JSON wouldn't work and SQLite needed

A relational database in a file is cool if you need the performance and features of SQL. But for our use-case, JSON is open and much better.

SQLite a step up from HDF5 (bigger community!) but still shares same problems (opacity, single implementation).

NWB alpha standardises the nature of data ("what") as well as the format ("how"). As long as "what" is standard, converting "how"s is easy.
