All the Open #Datasets from New York City Visualized in a Single View | #opendata #dataviz | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

"Visualizing NYC's Open Data" [chriswhong.com] by self-proclaimed urbanist, map maker and data junkie Chris Wong provides a single view of the more than 1,100 open datasets made available by New York City.

 

The visualization of the "dataset of datasets" consists of a force-directed graph, of which the nodes are colored according to whether the according dataset is a table, chart, map, a file or a user-created view (colored blue).

 

The graph acts as an alternative portal to explore the available data, while demonstrating its scale and diversity.

The Biology of Organizational Intelligence - It's People | #openknowledge | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it

Via Claude Emond
luiy's insight:

The emergence of new organizational designs based on the metaphors of open, living systems will become a powerful, corrective force. Permeability and increased stakeholder engagement are part of something very big just that’s over the horizon. You might even say it is the next phase in the evolution of democracy; one that will extend its reach beyond the public realm and into the private sector.When it comes, it will be good for society, good for the planet and good for business.

Es ley el acceso libre a la información científica | #openaccess #openscience

Es ley el acceso libre a la información científica | #openaccess #openscience | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
El Senado de la Nación aprobó por unanimidad la norma que obliga a las instituciones científicas del país a facilitar el acceso abierto a las investigaciones.
luiy's insight:

Según el secretario de Articulación Científico Tecnológica del Ministerio, Alejandro Ceccatto, “la sanción de la ley es una respuesta a la posición monopólica de las grandes editoriales internacionales que concentran la publicación de investigaciones científicas” y agregó que “el objetivo es que la producción científica financiada por la sociedad sea accesible. Es inaceptable que si el Estado Nacional financia la investigación de una persona después no pueda la sociedad toda acceder a ese conocimiento”.

 

Tras la media sanción en la Cámara de Diputados, durante mayo de 2012, la prestigiosa revista Nature publicó que “este tipo de legislaciones nacionales no son comunes en el resto del mundo aunque algunos países están comenzando a delinear políticas tendientes al acceso abierto de las investigaciones financiadas por el Estado”. Además la revista resaltó que “Argentina está nacionalizando su producción científica” y que esto podría “beneficiar a la comunidad internacional”.

 

En la región, solo Perú posee una ley de Acceso Abierto sancionada el año pasado, que convirtió al país en el segundo de América Latina, después de Argentina, en elevar una legislación nacional al respecto. En el caso de Estados Unidos, la obligatoriedad de publicar las investigaciones solo alcanza a aquellas financiadas con fondos públicos a través de sus Institutos Nacionales de Salud (NIH). Finalmente la Comisión Europea promueve el acceso abierto pero todavía con iniciativas aisladas.

Immersion: a people-centric view of your email life | #SNA #tools #SNA_INDATCOM

Immersion: a people-centric view of your email life | #SNA #tools #SNA_INDATCOM | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:
What is Immersion? It has been almost two decades since the beginning of the web. This means that the web is no longer just a technology of the present, but also, a record of our past. 

Email, one of the original forms of social media, is even older than the web and contains a detailed description of our personal and professional history. Immersion is an invitation to dive into the history of your email life in a platform that offers you the safety of knowing that you can always delete your data. Just like a cubist painting, Immersion presents users with a number of different perspectives of their email data. 
It provides a tool for self-reflection at a time where the zeitgeist is one of self-promotion. 
It provides an artistic representation that exists only in the presence of the visitor. 
It helps explore privacy by showing users data that they have already shared with others. 
Finally, it presents users wanting to be more strategic with their professional interactions, with a map to plan more effectively who they connect with. So Immersion is not about one thing. It’s about four. It’s about self-reflection, art, privacy and strategy. It’s about providing users with a number of different perspectives by leveraging on the fact that the web, and emails, are now an important part of our past.

 

 

 

Once you log in, Immersion will use only the From, To, Cc and Timestamp fields of the emails in the account you are signing in with. It will not access the subject or the body content of any of your emails.

 

Upon logging out of Immersion, you will be presented with a choice to save or delete your data, which contains your compressed email metadata and user profile. If you decide to save your email metadata with Immersion, that data will be stored in a secure system. You can always return to the site remotely and delete it at a later time, if you wish to do so.
If you take a snapshot of your Immersion network, the snapshot link will be accessible for 30 days, after which it will be deleted from our server.

#Open311 : An #OpenModel Provides Transparency, #Participation, and Collaboration.

#Open311 : An #OpenModel Provides Transparency, #Participation, and Collaboration. | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Open311 technologies use the internet to enable these interactions to be asynchronous and many-to-many. This means that several different people can openly exchange information centered around a single public issue. This open model allows people to provide more actionable information for those who need it most and it encourages the public to be engaged with civic issues because they know their voices are being heard. Yet Open311 isn’t just about this more open internet-enabled model for 311 services, it’s also about making sure the technology itself is open so that 311 services and applications are interoperable and can be used everywhere.

Graph databases list | #open #gephi #FlockDB #SNA | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

Graph databases use graph structures (a finite set of ordered pairs or certain entities), with edges, properties and nodes for data storage. It provides index-free adjacency, meaning that every element is directly linked to its neighbour element. No index lookups are necessary. Graph database are faster when it comes to associative data set compared to relational databases. As they do not need join operations, they can scale naturally to large data sets.

INTRODUCING STREAMTOOLS: A GRAPHICAL TOOL FOR WORKING WITH STREAMS OF DATA

 

New and open source from the New York Times R&D Lab.

 

We see a moment coming when the collection of endless streams of data is commonplace. As this transition accelerates it is becoming increasingly apparent that our existing toolset for dealing with streams of data is lacking. Over the last 20 years we have invested heavily in tools that deal with tabulated data, from Excel, MySQL, and MATLAB to Hadoop, R, and Python+Numpy. These tools, when faced with a stream of never-ending data, fall short and diminish our creative potential.

 

In response to this shortfall we have created streamtools—a new, open source project by the New York Times R&D Lab which provides a general purpose, graphical tool for dealing with streams of data. It offers a vocabulary of operations that can be connected together to create live data processing systems without the need for programming or complicated infrastructure. These systems are assembled using a visual interface that affords both immediate understanding and live manipulation of the system.
