Stuff I've seen April 15th through April 17th

These are my links for April 15th through April 17th:

  • G20 Police Witnesses IDed: ‘D5′ – City of London Police dog handler A712 – ID'ing G20 police officers
  • YouTube – How copyright extension in sound recordings actually works – How copyright extension in sound recordings actually works.
  • Better ways to share information digitally: West Midlands Regional Observatory. – The Observatory’s Population & Society Group is planning a seminar in the summer to investigate and discuss how research organisations in the West Midlands can get better at sharing information digitally. Do you have any thoughts on this?
  • The Social Innovation Camp comes to Scotland. – Over one weekend from 19th-21st June 2009, we’re bringing together some of the best of the UK’s software developers and designers with those at the sharp end of social problems at the Saltire Centre, Glasgow.

    Their mission will be to turn six back-of-the-envelope ideas that could change the world into social start-ups in under 48 hours – complete with working software.

    You’ve got until Friday 22nd May 2009 to send us your idea that uses the web to create social change and you could be joining 100 other participants to try and make it a reality.

  • Local Authority Mapping Collective | Bringing together mapped data across the UK – The Local Authority Mapping Collective aims to get officers from local authorities in the UK collaborating with one another using Google My Maps. It is hoped that this will allow for large sets of mapped data to be made publically available without the need for bespoke software development. This data could then be used on local authority websites, as well as being made downloadable to use in any number of projects.

    We would also like to encourage members of the public to get involved; if your council is not submitting their data to any of our maps, let them know about this project. The more local authorities we can get on board, the larger the data sets we can make available.
