  • John Kunze, EZID System Architect, and Greg Janée, EZID Technical Lead, both attended the third annual CSV conference in Portland, May 2-3. “CSV” is short for “comma separated values,” and it is a common format for data exchange. Excel files can be saved in this format, for example, so that they can be opened by a program other than Excel. The conference is becoming a hub for “stories about data sharing and data analysis from science, journalism, government, and open source.” For more information, see
