Open Data developments in Asia | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog - 1 views

  •  
    This blog about Open Data Developments in Asia analyses the recent state of Open Data adopted in Asia and highlights some of the 11 Asian countries participants that attended the Open Knowledge Conference in Geneva in 2012. Of the 11 countries that attended the conference, the author of the post focuses on the East Asian and Pacific countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar and discusses their state and role in Openness. The author does a good job at providing statistics of the different countries in terms of the Worldbank Knowledge Economy Index (KEI), which analyzes the economic rankings of countries. The author then compares economic rank to that of openness, stating that countries low on the economic rank contribute little to no open data within their own countries or externally to other countries.
    Next, the author talks about the overall internet penetration in Asia as being only 27.5 percent and in that statistic, there is still a wide gap between North and South East Asia in terms of internet use and information distribution and acquisition from citizens and others.
    Moreover, the author continues to compare how many social, economical, political and cultural influence information distribution, contribution and acquisition in Asia countries. Openness is growing in the more developed Asian countries, but openness is limited, or even nonexistent, in developing (authoritative) countries.
    After reading this article, I've had a greater understanding of the current state of Open Data in Asia an the influences that contribute to enabling Openness. What I expected from the blog post or something that would've made the post even better could be some examples or projects of Openness or Open Data in Asia.

    Many interesting charts and data of the global internet use, access, and contributions

    Cool!! It's so valuable to see behind the scenes of a lot of the open (or closed) tools we use. These images, maps, and infographics are really neat and use a lot of data that probably gets forgotten about in a lot of discussions. Thanks for posting!
  •  
    Atlas, publications, charts and tables of global information and internet geographies and impacts on information access, information production and information distribution, done over a four year period by Oxford Information Institute. Findings, data, and publication will be published in Open Access formats and platforms.
    The website is simple but contains lots of information relevant to the topics in Stanford. There are links to external related publications about information geography, access, distribution and production. Very good website. Some limitations include: bias from the two developers and producers as well as institution itself, unknown (not identified) contributors and sponsors.
  •  
    A very valuable collection demonstrating how economic, political, cultural and linguistic ties impact the flow of knowledge is and information. Of course, such charts do little to explain, why this happens and where a more even distribution of knowledge is desirable. Also, the data that lies behind the visualisations is not always open.
    Especially vauable are the links to the data collections that are accessible.

Las bibliotecas universitarias y la gestión de la información en el entorno d... - 1 views

  •  
    El objetivo de este documento es proponer a las bibliotecas universitarias una estrategia tecnológica para adaptarse a los cambios que se están produciendo en los ámbitos del aprendizaje y la investigación. Los principales cambios a los que nos vamos a referir son: la web es la nueva plataforma para la comunicación de la información, esta web está orientada no sólo a los humanos sino también a las máquinas y está potenciando el trabajo en red y en colaboración. Por otra parte, esta forma de trabajar está generando un nuevo concepto de unidad de información, modelada no sólo por la necesidad de representar nuevas formas de publicación (texto, data, simulaciones…) en las nuevas prácticas científicas, sino también por los cambios en la naturaleza de las herramientas de creación y los entornos en que se usan. Finalmente, cada vez más, los usuarios no sólo consumen información, sino que también quieren participar en su generación (blogs, wikis, youtube, slideshare...).

    Se describen las implicaciones que esos cambios están teniendo en el entorno de las bibliotecas universitarias: la importancia del e-learning, los CRAI y el nuevo modelo de comunicación y publicación científica y se indican algunas líneas de actuación para orientar la estrategia tecnológica de las bibliotecas a la luz de estas transformaciones: nuevo concepto de unidad de información, interoperabilidad, flexibilidad y arquitecturas abiertas.

Is this the end for books? - 5 views

    In 1996, the US computer entrepreneur Brewster Kahle set up the Internet Archive, its mission being to provide "universal access to all knowledge". This admirable project strives to store copies of every single web page ever posted: a ghostly archive of the virtual.

    Apliquemos la ley de Clarke a estas predicciones. Si la predicción de los eminentes estudiosos de edad madura, y bibliófilos, se formula así: ES POSIBLE QUE EL LIBRO IMPRESO EN PAPEL NO DESAPAREZCA, y la ley de Clarke dice: "Cuando un científico pero de edad madura afirma que algo es posible, casi siempre estará en lo cierto. Cuando declara que algo es imposible, lo más probable es que se equivoque", la predicción casi siempre será cierta si esos libros no desaparecen. Si la predicción se formula en esta forma: ES IMPOSIBLE QUE EL LIBRO DESAPAREZCA, y los libros desaparecen, lo más probable es que se equivoquen. ¿Por cuál fórmula optamos?

    Apliquemos ahora la primera versión del corolario de Asimov a la predicción que augura el fin del libro formulada así: EL LIBRO ESTÁ MUERTO (O MORIRÁ), AUNQUE NO DEL TODO. El corolario dice: "Sin embargo, cuando el público profano se manifiesta en torno a una idea denunciada por científicos eminentes pero de edad madura, y apoya dicha idea con fervor y sentimiento, es posible, después de todo, que los científicos eminentes pero de edad madura estén en lo cierto". Por lo tanto: Es posible, después de todo, que los eminentes estudiosos pero de edad madura, y bibliófilos, estén en lo cierto.

    No hay más remedio que esperar a que pase el tiempo para ver si se cumplen la ley y los corolarios en las predicciones, enunciadas en una u otra forma.

    Thank you for posting.

    Although I am not very keen on reading fiction electronically, the article was very interesting and informative about the latest tendencies in electronic publishing.
  •  
    I am one of those people who like reading books electronically and enjoy it. Kindle has been around for some years now but we still have books publshed in paper format. There is still a number of people who prefare to have paper copy of a book. Books are here to stay. I have a kindle but I hardly ever use the devise. I use the app on my mobile, computer or Ipad.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - 0 views

  •  
    Welcome to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP). From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up-to-date by an expert or group of experts in the field. All entries and substantive updates are refereed by the members of a distinguished Editorial Board before they are made public. Consequently, our dynamic reference work maintains academic standards while evolving and adapting in response to new research. You can cite fixed editions that are created on a quarterly basis and stored in our Archives (every entry contains a link to its complete archival history, identifying the fixed edition the reader should cite). The Table of Contents lists entries that are published or assigned. The Projected Table of Contents also lists entries which are currently unassigned but nevertheless projected.
