Well it’s been pretty quiet around here on the blog front, but things have really been cooking behind the scenes:
- Hosting is now set up and data is being processed ready for the forthcoming beta launch of what we are calling the (dis)Connection State Map (alpha version from the EU Hackathon here).
- Ongoing mapping and interface improvements are being added.
- The new website is practically ready to roll and we are starting work on a public wiki as well.
- Strategic partnerships with relevant organisations are coming along and we’ve had many meetings with interested parties.
- Simon, Ruben & Gustaf were in Rio for RightsCon, the related hackathon and the Freebird “pre-event”.
- Data sources have been investigated.
- And we’re lucky to have a whole new bunch of very capable people from various disciplines onboard .
All of this without any funding! Imagine what we could do with actual moneys ! So give us your support – we’ve applied for funding from the Knight Foundation News Challenge 2 – data: to support please click on this link and click on the “like” button and repost where possible.
