Dear Time Machine friends!

During the course of October the Time Machine Organisation crew was trying to reach out and engage our large network of members, partners and supporters  using a new format of virtual broadcasting to inform about four main priority areas of action as detailed in the recently published TMO Operational Plan 2020-2021, namely:
  • Priority Area  I  - Time Machine Agenda
  • Priority Area II  - Local Time Machines
  • Priority Area III - Project Scouting Services
  • Priority Area IV - Third Party Services
The topics were presented in the form of webinars on three Mondays in a row, each hosted by two leading TMO board- /staff members, using the format of Microsoft Teams' live events, offering the attendees the possibility to interact and approach the speakers via a Question & Answer chat. The series of events started on October 12th with an introduction of the idea behind Time Machine Projects/Local Time Machines, followed the next Monday by a session combining TMO's Priority Areas III and IV: Services to members and third parties, and finally on October 26th explaining TMO's approach towards the development of the Time Machine tools (see below).

In addition to offering a look behind the scenes of the different TMO operations, the webinars were also intended as test runs for the upcoming virtual Time Machine Conference TM2020 on November 23rd and 24th.

TMO Webinar #3

This webinar, on October 26th, was lead by TMO's President Frédéric Kaplan and Chief Technical Officer Daniel Jeller and introduced TMO's plans and ideas on how to set up, monitor, further develop and finally implement the different software components that will help building a Time Machine based on the Big Data of the Past.
Frédéric Kaplan
TMO President
Daniel Jeller
TMO Chief Technical Officer
Using the principle of  "Requests for Comments" (RFCs) - open access source code documents where the community can actively contribute by editing, reviewing, commenting etc. - the TMO-Team intends to approach the development of the following four core software components step by step:

Data Graph - containing all the information modelled in the Time Machine
4D Map  - displaying all ongoing Time Machine Projects and the datasets of these projects (= Local Time Machines)
Code Library - collection of key functions for data processing in several programming languages
Project Repository - database of all active (and past) Time Machine Projects

... if you are interested in supporting our Team in proceeding with the development of the different tools, as RFC writer /editor /reviewer, please feel free to contact us:
