This post on public-semweb-lifesci requires a response....

Does anyone from the team want to respond to "myExperiment does not allow editing the actual workflows online" 0021.html

Also, it's interesting to see scientific workflows can be published via Wiki (e.g., myExperiment).

But as far as I know, myExperiment does not allow editing the actual workflows online, you can only upload and visualize workflow files that have been created on the client-side. I guess that still poses a significant hindrance to realizing the 'anyone can edit' philosophy of classic wikis. In this regard, fully server-sided systems such as the well known Yahoo Pipes or the quickly maturing Semantic Web Pipes [1] might be the way to go.

Regarding the article, it will probably seem a bit puzzling to many people on this mailing list that Lincoln Stein writes

"To my knowledge, there is currently only one project that aims to bring the pure semantic web to biomedical research. That project is the Simple Semantic Web Architecture and Protocol (SSWAP30)"

It's nice that Nature allows the community to add descriptions about our various projects on the wiki page associated with the article [2]; unfortunately, though, most readers of the original article will probably not have a look at that wiki.
