This is an excellent first step in defining the scientific
communities. Thank you Jason for pulling this together.

I would imagine the scientists who are using the data and
technologists who are making the data collection possible are likely
in very close collaboration with each other. If this is the case, it
probably doesn't matter who engage for these initial interviews.
There could also be cases where we have K-20 folks who will want to
work with the technologists and others who would want to collaborate
with the scientists doing cool things with the data. I'm not sure we
want or need to predict in advance exactly how the use cases are going
to play out. What we certainly can do as a group is brainstorm some
of the likely K-20 use scenarios in each of the instrument categories
but not limit ourselves to these. Other thoughts?
Looking forward to our discussion this morning.
