> Why have space and time been pulled apart like this?
One of the strengths of the IVOA process has been that discussions
are public (sometimes tediously so :–)
This is quite refreshing after following the time wars and now the
planetary wars (dwarf or otherwise), in which it seems that various
interests aren't only special, but sometimes unfathomably peculiar.
As the IVOA (and national VO) processes are stressed by the need to
demonstrate progress, visibility into those processes will be
endangered. Many thanks, indeed, for the powerpoint and STC (well,
STC-like) examples, but the motivation behind these options is pretty
opaque at the moment. I guess for Roy, too.
Awaiting enlightenment. Ommmm...
