Here are some of the things I’ve been reading February 23rd from 16:39 to 23:38:
- Open Government Ideas Look All the Same: Are You Surprised? –
- Nodalities » Blog Archive » Richard Stirling Talks about data.gov.uk –
- When using open source makes you an enemy of the state | Technology | guardian.co.uk – "It turns out that the International Intellectual Property Alliance, an umbrella group for organisations including the MPAA and RIAA, has requested with the US Trade Representative to consider countries like Indonesia, Brazil and India for its "Special 301 watchlist" because they use open source software."
- digital economy bill – massive lobby remains | Tom Watson MP – "If you counted the number of people who are working full time to bounce this Bill through the Commons on behalf of big publishing interests I bet it would run into three figures. Those that want to protect the Internet connections of the nation’s youth? Probably one or two."
- Are newspapers selling linkspam? (Again?) | Online Journalism Blog – "Clever as this idea may sound, the newspapers may want to research what happened when other publications tried the same approach. The Irish Independent, the Economist and The Times are among publications whose PageRank has been penalised by Google."
- RAWM and Charity Builder UK – "RAWM has joined forces with Charity Builder UK to offer a £300 a year web service free of charge to RAWM members.
Charity Builder UK (CBUK) is a new online service which has the potential to transform administrative tasks in your organization. Designed for charities and community groups, it provides advice on lots of important topics such as human resources, health and safety, volunteering and governance."
