New Primer On Mobile Phone Network Data for Development | United Nations Global Pulse

New Primer On Mobile Phone Network Data for Development | United Nations Global Pulse | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

We are pleased to publish ‘Mobile Phone Network Data for Development’, a primer on how analysis of Call Detail Records (CDRs) can provide valuable information for humanitarian and development purposes.

Earlier this year we produced the Global Pulse “Big Data for Development Primer”,  an introductory guide for the global development community, summarizing key terms, concepts, case studies and challenges around big data.

Our new primer, Mobile Phone Network Data for Development, is an accessible synthesis of a growing body of research on mobile phone data analysis in development or humanitarian contexts. For example, de-identified CDRs have allowed researchers to see aggregate geographic trends such as the flow of mass populations during after natural disasters, how malaria can spread via human movement, or the passage of commuters through a city at peak times. 

The document explains three types of indicators that can be extracted through analysis of CDRs (mobility, social interaction and economic activity), includes a synthesis of several research examples and a summary of privacy protection considerations.

Prime Radio Bridges Learning Gap in Africa | Radio World

Prime Radio Bridges Learning Gap in Africa | Radio World | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it
Radio World Combination solar/wind-up radios provide access to education, information for up to 20 million people

 

Equipped with FM, AM and three SW bands, the Prime Radio can be powered by a solar panel (stored in the back of the radio’s case), its onboard hand-cranked battery charger (based on Freeplay’s original design), or a DC input that can connect to a car battery or, when available, AC mains power. The solar panel comes with a USB port option that can be used to charge cellphones.

The Prime Radio was borne out of Lifeline’s solar-powered MP3 player, which is known as the Lifeplayer. Capable of holding 64 GB of pre-loaded educational/informational content, the Lifeplayer is basically a Prime Radio with an MP3 player and recorder built in. The British Council in Kenya is distributing more than 6,000 Lifeplayers in rural and remote areas of Africa, to further group education in English (an important language for business and commerce in Africa).

“Here’s a vision of lives being improved through simple, yet ingenious technology,” said Tom Hanks, two-time Academy Award winner and Lifeline Energy’s unpaid American ambassador. He is quoted on the organization’s website.

Does the business model for sustainable public service media exist? | Hirondelle USA

Does the business model for sustainable public service media exist? | Hirondelle USA | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

In January 2011, the highly acclaimed and independent STAR radio in Liberia closed its doors. Efforts to generate operating revenues locally through advertising, and to strengthen the station’s management and governance through the creation of a local Board of Directors, were too little, too late. Considerable investment over the years in journalism training and editorial support meant that STAR was breaking important stories, and was viewed by the Liberian population as a credible, independent source of information. But a fledgling commercial department was left understaffed and unable to tap into the steadily growing advertising market and translate this into revenue for the radio.

...

Hirondelle USA is a non-profit organization that supports the peaceful transformation of societies coming out of conflict or undergoing democratic change.

You have 24 hours to build the future of music

You have 24 hours to build the future of music | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

A Music Hack Day is unlike most other hackathons. There are no mega-prizes for the best hacks. There are no VCs wandering the hacker hallways trolling for the next startup. There are no briefs that describe the types of apps that you should build. Hackers don’t go to a Music Hack Day to win big prizes, or to launch their startup. Hackers go to Music Hack Days because they love music and they love to build stuff. At a Music Hack Day these passionate builders get to apply their talents to music, surrounded by like-minded peers and build their version of the future of music. The currency at a Music Hack Day is not money or VC attention, the currency is creativity.  The Music Hack Day prize is knowing that you’ve built something cool enough to delight other music hackers.

So what happens at a Music Hack Day? How does it all work? What kind of hacks do people build? Read on to see exactly what happened at the Boston Music Hack Day 2013, held this last weekend.

Turning archives into journalistic goldmines | Journalism++

Turning archives into journalistic goldmines | Journalism++ | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

WAN-IFRA Media Hackday i Berlin, 5-6 October
Task:  Find new ways to reinvent and reengineer newspaper content archives so that their content can become relevant for the content-hungry digital age.
Data: Content API:s from Guardian AFP, Axel Springer, Readmill, Storyful, The Guardian, Watch Mi

Media archives is an almost completely unutilized source of information. Old stories are piled up with little or no structure which makes them difficult to make use of.

This was the (most certainly relevant) starting point for the WAN-IFRA Media Hackday in Berlin, 5-6 October. We, Team Journalism++ United consisting of Pierre Romerra (Paris),Erik Willems (Amsterdam), Yordi Dam (Amsterdam), Nicolas Kayser-Bril (Berlin) and Jens Finnäs (Stockholm), chose to take on the challenge from a journalistic angle. How can we increase the value of the utility of the archives for reporters and editors?

Journalists have a bad memory. We tend to forget to follow up the stories we write. Was the building of the new school finished according to schedule? Were the financial goals met? Were the promises made about the future fulfilled?

We named our hack Broken Promises. Using Guardians content API (the paper was kind enough to offer full access during the hackathon) we scraped thousands of old stories for future references. The articles were stored in a database and on top of this database we built a dashboard that would give a quick overview of all the past stories that mention this day, month and year.

Radio Fañch: Tintin en Afghanistan…

Radio Fañch: Tintin en Afghanistan… | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

J'ai un peu hésité pour ce titre qui, si on le prennait au pied de la lettre, pourrait faire croire que le reporter que je vais évoquer ici ressemble au héros d'Hergé. Rien à voir. Le "Tintin reporter" dont il s'agit n'est autre que Raphaël Krafft dont j'ai fait la connaissance autrefois dans les "Travaux publics" de Jean Lebrun (1). En 2007, précisément, quand ce reporter de la rencontre avait décidé, après moult autres aventures de "terrain", de parcourir la France à vélo, quelques semaines avant les élections présidentielles pour raconter et faire se raconter les Français jamais visités par les médias. 
Il me faut préciser qu'avant de lire le livre qui narre par le menu son "aventure" de la création, ex-nihilo, d'une radio "locale" en Afghanistan (2), je l'ai rencontré il y a quelques jours, rue de Rome à Paris, pour le voir évoquer cette épopée fantastique. Puis sans la moindre réticence j'ai lu son livre. "Moindre réticence" car, généralement, les faits d'arme (ou non) de l'armée française me laissent assez dubitatifs… Mais qu'un journaliste accepte une formation militaire (a minima, mais quand même), intègre la Légion étrangère, endosse le grade de capitaine et parte, au milieu des hostilités, créer de toutes pièces une radio "locale" à destination des populations afghanes, force à laisser au vestiaire quelques préjugés et autres souvenirs personnels pénibles

Finding the universal, a lesson of diversity by CBC Toronto Radio | Radiodays Europe 2013

Finding the universal, a lesson of diversity by CBC Toronto Radio | Radiodays Europe 2013 | Radio Hacktive (Fr-Es-En) | Scoop.it

Within a year, Susan Marjetti turned CBC Toronto into the leading radio programme in Canada. Today "The Metro Morning" is a business model of diversity.
 
Susan Marjetti had a vision. Toronto was and still is the most diverse city in Canada. She wanted CBC to be more relevant to more people.
 
She also had the strategy: recruit, hire, and reach out to the people in the city. Listen to them, include their ideas, and tell their stories.
 
Marjetti finally had the courage. People don't like change. During the first months, Marjetti lost large parts of CBC's core audience. But an even larger share of new listeners appeared, and within a year, the core returned.
 
Over the last decade CBC Toronto has tripled its audience share. "If you build it, they will come, we are living proof of that. Challenge yourself to new ways," Marjetti says.
 
To her, this meant to recruit and hire people of all backgrounds to expand the range of perspectives in the programming department. If you want to be diverse, this needs to reflect in your team.
 
On the other hand, "you need to find the universal to make diversity work." When Marjetti played a short soundbite of a Chinese mother desperately calling out to her kidnapped daughter in Mandarin, she only provided translation afterwards. But the audience had already understood.
 
Susan Marjetti provided an impressive example of how diversity works as a tool of success in public radio.
