    This is a data visualization of the 1,551,402 311 service requests in New York City during 2012. Heat is added to the map at the time and location corresponding to the dataset. heat will gradually disspate to surrounding areas and disappear unless that area is "warmed up" by new activity. A surge of activity can be observed at the beginning of November 2012 after Hurricane Sandy. Thanks for watching! Visualization by @chris_whong Made with Processing.

      A social experiment in trying to live an "Open" life. www.richards35th.blogspot.com This video outlines a little bit about why I've chosen to attempt to lead an "Open" life. Essentially, this is my way of not being a hypocrite to my own work....which takes place in the Open Government / Open Data space. In other words, if I'm going to ask our institutions to be "Open" ....I should be as well.

              • Mike Powell from IKMemergent on Open Development


                from Research to Action / Added

                Discussing the IKMemergent project, Mike Powell highlights the potential impact of Open Access and Open Data on knowledge management and creation. At the IMWG workshop in Antwerp, he highlights existing problems with knowledge duplication and waste and how this could be reduced as new means of managing open sources emerge. However, he warns that while open development offers the potential for broader equity in knowledge production and use, it needs to be combined with holistic reviews of how development assistance is implemented to ensure that information is transferred both to the head offices and to the people on the ground.
