Data management satire

For all you scientists, a satirical response to a new NSF requirement for grantees. Brought to my attention by my sister Lisa, an archaeology PhD student.

A sample:

“I will store all data on at least one, and possibly up to 50, hard drives in my lab. The directory structure will be custom, not self-explanatory, and in no way documented or described. Students working with the data will be encouraged to make their own copies and modify them as they please, in order to ensure that no one can ever figure out what the actual real raw data is.”
