Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: I have heard Europeans joke about themselves saying, “America innovates, Asia imitates, and Europe hesitates.” However, ESOC is a case where Europe is innovating while America is hesitating. I’m a committed believer in Open Data (OD) and Open Science (OS), so I salute their leadership. And I appreciate Jean Claude’s giving us an insider’s view as to how this leadership (and its associated challenges) came about. I had the good fortune of “being on the inside” in some of the projects which led to today’s global Internet, so my brief remarks will focus on describing some of the salient features of the Internet development that may (or may not) apply to ESOC development.
