Dronestream by Josh Begley - Real-time and historical data about every reported US drone strike | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

When 28-year-old New York University grad student Josh Begley first decided he would tweet more than a decade of reported U.S. military drone strikes and their aftermaths in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen, he thought he could finish rapid-fire in ten minutes. Four weeks later — with his pace slowed a bit over the holidays — Begley is just nearing the end of 2010. The @dronestream project, conceived as part of NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, is a follow-up to Begley's Drone+, an iPhone app mapping every drone strike in real-time that was banned by Apple, and draws constant, methodical attention to a hush-hush reality.

TextCite Publication Quotation Manager

TextCite Publication Quotation Manager | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

TextCite is a program for organizing and commenting textual citations from texts (books, articles, or other published works) for use in producing scientific or academic publications.

 

You can organize by publication, author, category, or outline. It works with bibliographic management programs like Citation, EndNote, RefWorks, and BibTeX, providing important text/citation management capabilities that these programs lack, while still allowing for rapid footnote and bibliography generation by means of your favorite bibliography manager.

 

It also exports to PDF and Word (RTF).
