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.

    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.

    Very useful, thank you. I made two free websites not long ago and then two days later, the company sent me messages that to keep them I had to pay for the service. Then it is not free, is It?

    Una aplicación muy interesante que promueve la integración de los estudiantes con discapacidad auditiva en un aula, ya que permite la traducción simultánea de los fonemas y las palabras al lenguaje de signos. Muchas gracias por la aportación.
  •  
    Conozco al profesor que ha llevado a cabo la investigación, Dr. Vicente Arévalo, y sé de su capacidad de innovación. En este caso, la aplicación es capaz de responder a una necesidad básica: la inclusión de aquellos individuos con discapacidad en un aula, de manera que todos puedan convivir en un clima de armonía y normalidad. La inmediata traducción de voz a lenguaje Braille facilita este hecho y permite dar un paso más en la realidad perseguida de una Escuela Inclusiva.

    Conozco al profesor que ha ideado el proyecto, Dr. Vicente Arévalo, así como su capacidad para innovar y trabajar. La aplicación cubre un hueco fundamental en la búsqueda de una Escuela Inclusiva, al permitir a personas con discapacidad (en este caso, auditiva), poder participar de manera natural en la dinámica de un aula, interaccionando con el resto de sus compañeros. Ello se consigue gracias a esta aplicación, que permite realizar una traducción simultánea e inmediata del lenguaje hablado al lenguaje Braille, haciendo más próxima la realidad de una completa escuela inclusiva.

1. Introduction - Practical statistics - 2 views

  •  
    Thank you for sharing the resource on library statistics. The site attracted my attention first of all because it is a Scandinavian resource. The material contains lots of useful theoretical and practical material. In the introduction the author states "It contains a number of research papers, but the framework is different. This is collection of texts, tables, graphics and links that are aimed at the people who actually run libraries." Statistics is a useful tool if used correctly and wisely. It may inspire changes and innovations and also measure the importance of changes. Besides, collection and interpretation of statistical data also changes with the course of time. The author has very clearly explained library statistics with good examples. .

    Textbook Crisis - For using just a chapter from a book, I think this is a very good idea. I did not know teachers and professors could do this. I think this is very productive idea, instead of students or making students buy the whole book for a chapter.
