Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] next gen viewer
Date Sat, 07 Sep 2013 17:58:59 GMT
Hi Dan,

I would be interested in helping out with a new viewer that is stateless 
and (data-type) extensible. When I first saw this thread I thought 
"HTML 5?" Then I saw David's reply and comment, so then maybe 
not..

I know of an application development coming up in a few years time 
where I'd like to push Isis, but it requires support for scientific data 
visualisation (waveforms, graphs and etc). So this would be an 
absolute must for me (the ability to add a component handler for a 
MIME/blob type)... (d3js.org looks interesting.. must look more into it)

Excellent idea. I'd also like to add "timezone handling" to the agenda..

Well, I can recommend Slovenia (EasyJet flies direct to Ljubljana)! 
It's a quiet little country and most people probably wouldn't consider 
coming here without good reason, so why not offer this as a reason.. 
but practically I realise that somewhere more central is more likely to 
be favoured by all.
