  1. Which Had the Superior Military: First or Second World War Germany?

    This is unadorned/unfinished audio of a Dan Carlin discussion about which German military was superior, the First or the Second World War version. Unlike the approach in traditional Hardcore History releases, brevity wins out over depth in this attempt at short-form content from a traditionally long-form creator (note that it is still 50 minutes!)

    Friday lunchtime lecture: When governments open up, who manages their data?

    Friday 19 September 2014,

    1:00pm -


    The Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

    You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

    Governments hold a lot of data. A huge amount of data. And many are beginning to open it up for citizens and businesses to monitor and improve all sorts of things – from education and public services to crime rates and traffic. But all this data has to be stored, managed and presented in ways people can understand.

    CKAN is a data management platform used by governments and organisations around the world to handle these important functions. Irina Bolychevsky gave a live demonstration of its data management workflows, visualisation and discovery features that help make data easy to upload, access and re-use.

    Irina Bolychevsky is the Commercial Director of Open Knowledge and the former CKAN Product Owner

  4. A16z Podcast: Government Transparency Powered by Software | Andreessen Horowitz


    What if we could tap into our government with the same speed and ease as our smartphones and search? Can technology make a difference in how government operates, and how we citizens interact with it? Two-time Mountain View Mayor Mike Kasperzak, OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman, and a16z’s Tom Rikert discuss government’s historically uneasy relationship with technology, how a growing trend in government transparency is being powered by software, and why you should be glad your local city council takes its sweet time to pass a budget.

    Inbox Zero: Merlin Mann on Getting Things Done, Opportunity Cost and Sunk Cost Fallacy – BTTDL032 (Beyond the To-Do List; May 14, 2013)

    In prepping to do an interview tomorrow with Erik Fisher, I’m listening back to our visit

    from back in May and remembering it’s one of my favorites.

    If you’re the sort of person who potentially likes hearing me talk about productivity and me and stuff, that was a good one.

    [Huffduff It]

    If I haven’t decided what always trumps everything else, I don’t have clarity on what I care about.
