The Enfield Experiment | Cities | The Guardian
The Enfield Experiment focuses on the fortunes of the London Borough of Enfield, home to some of the wealthiest parts of England – but also some of its most broken, where manufacturing has gone, to be replaced with deprivation. The local council is trying a series of big and risky manoeuvres to bring back industry and create jobs – but will it work? How will businesses respond? Are council staff up to their immense new task? The Guardian will track their progress over the next couple of years, in the paper, on the web and in films. The project is led by the Guardian's senior economics commentator, Aditya Chakrabortty

ARM to bring the Internet of Things to life at its Cambridge Campus
July 25, 2013, Cambridge, UK -- ARM announces work is underway to transform its headquarters into a hub for its partners’ Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. ARM and its partners won £800,000 in a competitive funding call from the Technology Strategy Board, the UK’s innovation agency, to deploy network technology and over 600 connected sensors across its premises in Cambridge. All of these connected sensors are controlled by smart ARM-technology based chips. The project will provide information and finer grained control of the site and its 75 car park lights, 40 meeting rooms, heating and water management systems. The company believes that making connected assets across the ARM campus work together will demonstrate tangible business benefits and help it achieve a reduction in energy use. Based on open internet standards and designed to help application developers mobilize connected assets of all kinds, the API specification will be made public to achieve broader deployment and to benefit businesses and individuals around the world.

Urban Observatory
The focus of the Urban Observatory is on the people who live in cities, the work they do there, the movement made possible through transportation networks, the public facilities needed to run the city, and the natural systems which are impacted by the city's footprint. If you are a city with datasets in any of these categories, we urge you to contribute it to the project. See the Participation Guide<http://www.urbanobservatory.org/pdfs/uo_participation-guide.pdf> [PDF] for more information.

Observing London | Publications | London Climate Change Partnership
London has a surprising amount of weather data – about 260 stations that measure some aspect of London’s atmosphere, including rainfall, temperature and air quality. These are operated by a wide range of organisations and individual volunteers, however, there is a general consensus that:

the data are not available at a high enough density across the city
many users cannot take full advantage of the data collected because they are not discoverable nor available in quality controlled, easily accessible formats online
Observing London makes the case that we could and should harness this wealth of information, most notably through the creation of a focused weather portal for London.

How data can bring schools together | Teacher Network | Guardian Professional
If schools are really going to crack the issue of chronic educational underachievement among traditionally disadvantaged groups of pupils, they need reliable data on the scale and varied nature of their attainment gap, and how they compare to other schools in a similar context. This will allow them to learn from other schools about how to improve.
