Title: Building a Community-Focused Data Platform

The National Data Service (NDS) presents a broad-reaching vision of integrating discovery, publishing, and sharing of data. Metcalfe's Law states that the value of a network increases with the number of connections in the network, not the number of nodes. The NDS must develop and steward connections not only between data, as is in its vision statement, but between individuals as well. We propose that this be accomplished by explicitly developing it as a platform on which data exploration can be constructed by individual researchers.
