Otto Doll, CIO of Minneapolis, led a great discussion on open data. Here are my notes on that discussion.
The city of Minneapolis has a lot of data. That gets put together in information presented to the community by the city. However, what raw data should be shared publicly? (Not all data can or should be shared.) How is that data shared? If we put this data out there, do we put it out there forever? Do we keep publishing it forever? Archiving it forever?
Recently, a number of high-profile government website redesigns have launched with giant search boxes front and center.
This includes utah.gov, calgary.ca and pretty much every entrant in a recent New York City hackathon. Each of these feature a huge search box, and typically a gorgeous photo, with very little additional content on the home page.
A Chasing After Wind is not just a short story collection; another story surrounds the telling of these stories. These contemporary stories walk the border between science fiction and fantasy, where moments of humor emerge from tragedies. Is this struggle in vain, a chasing after wind? Or does everyone deserve a second chance?
I am a web designer and developer with a passion for web standards, accessibility, usability, and information architecture. My toolbox includes hand-coding XHTML and CSS, Drupal, ColdFusion, and all things Adobe.
When my head is not in the web, I enjoy walks with my wife and dog through our lovely neighborhood (walks with our cat proved counterproductive), time with friends, traveling, reading, movies, fantasy and science fiction, Blu-Ray, a nice meal now and then, and all things iPhone.
If I were a flavor of ice cream, trust me, it would not be IE6.
