OK - I'm a retired civil servant with about 25 years with NASA and 2 with NOAA.
I was effectively PI for NASA's Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) that
measured the reflected sunlight and emitted terrestrial flux, determining that
clouds cool the current climate.  I did the system architecture for
the data production
system that eventually had about 1/4 million lines of FORTRAN.  After
ten years of
that activity, including leading a science team with about twenty
major Co-I's, I became
a PI (with Bruce Wielicki) on the NASA EOS investigation of Clouds and
the Earth's
Radiant Energy System (CERES).  The team was about the same size as ERBE's,
but the code (for which I was again the system architect) ran to about
2/3 million
SLOC.  I spent five years as Head of the LaRC Atmospheric Sciences Data Center
and had participated in all of the major design reviews for the Earth
Observing System
Data and Information System (EOSDIS).  At NOAA's National Climatic Data Center
(NCDC), I became the Data Stewardship Project Manager for a couple of years.
Since retiring from the federal government, I've participated heavily
in the Earth Science
Information Partner (ESIP) Federation's Working Group on Data Preservation (and
related topics).  That's probably more than enough about me.
