Apologies for the delayed response on this discussion!
@rdswift I do not have brief definitions for each of the entities. I created this within the first 3 months of time with MeB in an attempt to view what MeB looks like (the big picture). Perhaps creating definitions for the entities would be a good place to start before continuing forward!
@Freso as above I don't have definitions for each of the entities. A research student who uses MB may not be involved in GSOC or GCI but still a student. A 'user' is perhaps way to broad of a term to use in this image of MeB, I donno, I think all folks bring up good points of reviewing and defining the entities involved in our ecosystem.
The graphic as a whole is not supposed to have an sense or order--besides a fluid taking and giving back by all entities to the MeB Ecosystem. The points each entity come and go from are just the limits of google docs graphics and have no meaning, nor should they. Is the researcher less important than the corporation? IMHO: No.
Thank you @jesus2099 for the addition of Collectors!
Still if anyone wants to continue this discussion--there are many more questions!!!
