Abstract: The Virtual Observatory is often taken to be synonymous with “a federation of archive”. This leads one naturally to think only of big iron solutions hosted at large institutions. Rather, the Virtual Observatory represents a whole flotilla of astronomical computing solutions ranging in size from flagship data centers down through the frigates, sloops and pinnaces of semantic science infrastructure. We will discuss the inflatable dinghies of the Virtual Observatory, focusing on the “last mile” and first mile of the creation and transport of a VOEvent packet from discovery to follow-up.
