  1. What Could Have Entered The Public Domain?

    Duke law professor James Boyle discusses copyright law and the shrinking public domain In the public domain, work can be freely shared online, translated into other languages, or republished and cheaply distributed.
    But congressional extension of copyright regulations means no published works will enter the public domain until 2019. Host Frank Stasio speaks to James Boyle, law professor at Duke University and co-founder of Center for the Study of the Public Domain, about copyright law and the shrinking public domain.

  2. How Can We Use Data for Social Good?

    Data mining increasingly drives our lives: what movies we watch, what products we buy, and who we are friends with. Scientists work with data to build tools that help us make decisions in our lives. Much of their efforts focus on making us more comfortable, but we can also use data to solve big problems. As human rights organizations confront the need to understand and analyze vast amounts of data, they must ask how data can foster and grow more open societies. Organizations like DataKind—a community of pioneering data scientists and social innovators—help NGOs use data to change the world. Jake Porway is a data scientist and the founder and executive director of DataKind. A machine-learning and technology enthusiast who loves nothing more than seeing good values in data, Porway founded DataKind in the hopes of creating a world in which every social organization has access to data capacity to better serve humanity. He was most recently the data scientist in the New York Times R&D lab and remains an active member of the data science community. He holds a BS in computer science from Columbia University and his MS and PhD in statistics from UCLA.

  4. JavaScript in the real world - Andrew Nesbit ~ Full Frontal 2013

    Anything that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript. First client side web apps, then server side programs and now you can control hardware, embedded devices and even flying robots with JavaScript.

    We’ll look at how you can get started writing JavaScript for Arduino and Raspberry Pi to read sensors and control servos and build your own JavaScript powered robots.

  5. Jeremy Keith at From The Front 2011: One Web

    The range of devices accessing the web is increasing. We are faced with a choice in how we deal with this diversity. We can either fracture the web by designing a multitude of device-specific silos, or we can embrace the flexibility of the web and create experiences that can adapt to any device or browser.

  6. Mark Boulton: Outing the Mind: Designing for the Chaos

    Laying out content has changed little over the centuries. It’s improved through the application of technology, but the design decisions and motivations remain the same. Until now. Designing with type for the web is changing, and it’s happening right now. Hundreds of years of design practice is being increasingly challenged, and for those of us working in this medium, it’s hurting. Mark will look at the scale of this problem and how we can change the way we work to embrace it.
