AusGOAL | What is 'Open'
Principle 1: Open access to information - a default position

Information held by Australian Government agencies is a valuable national resource. If there is no legal need to protect the information it should be open to public access. Information publication enhances public access.  Agencies should use information technology to disseminate public sector information, applying a presumption of openness and adopting a proactive publication stance.

CC REL - Creative Commons
Creative Commons licences make content more useable. Not just because the licences grant permissive rights to reuse the content, but also because the metadata and rights expression language (REL) that are part of each CC makes them more searchable. The metadata adds information about the licensed work to the file – such as the title, creator, and licensing information – which is machine-readable. This has many useful advantages. For example, search engines can distinguish between CC and “All Rights Reserved” material.

“Anonymized” data really isn’t—and here’s why not | Ars Technica
At the time GIC released the data, William Weld, then Governor of Massachusetts, assured the public that GIC had protected patient privacy by deleting identifiers. In response, then-graduate student Sweeney started hunting for the Governor’s hospital records in the GIC data. She knew that Governor Weld resided in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a city of 54,000 residents and seven ZIP codes. For twenty dollars, she purchased the complete voter rolls from the city of Cambridge, a database containing, among other things, the name, address, ZIP code, birth date, and sex of every voter. By combining this data with the GIC records, Sweeney found Governor Weld with ease. Only six people in Cambridge shared his birth date, only three of them men, and of them, only he lived in his ZIP code. In a theatrical flourish, Dr. Sweeney sent the Governor’s health records (which included diagnoses and prescriptions) to his office.

Generate Your Own API Gateway Developer Portal | AWS Compute Blog
You can do this by hosting a developer portal: a web application that lists your APIs in catalog form, displays API documentation to help developers understand your API, and allows them to sign up for access. The application also needs to let developers test your APIs, and provide feedback to grow a successful developer ecosystem. Finally, you may also want to monetize your APIs and grow API product revenue.

Real-time streaming in Power BI | Microsoft Power BI
You can add Power BI as an output within Azure Stream Analytics (ASA), and then visualize those data streams in the Power BI service in real time. This section describes technical details about how that process occurs.

Azure Stream Analytics uses the Power BI REST APIs to create its output data stream to Power BI, with defaultMode set to pushStreaming (see earlier sections in this article for information on defaultMode), which results in a dataset that can take advantage of both push and streaming.

Identity Broker Service in SAML: Supporting Multiple Identity Providers & Service Providers | API Crazy
*excellent find via Nikunj*
A federated organisation may have multiple distinct services (service providers) where each service is protected under a distinct trust domain. The same organisation may wish to trust multiple external & internal identity providers and allow the end user to select their preferred identity provider. Furthermore the same federated organisation may require greater levels of certainty for specific services and may wish to limit the available identity providers for a specific service or enforce step-up authentication on the identity provider. This pattern is useful for governments and enterprise’s wishing to move away from a Push Model for Enterprise Identity Architecture.

The Corporate Implications of Longer Lives
Rising life expectancy means the level of savings required to provide a reasonable income for retirement at age 65 is becoming increasingly infeasible for most people.2 We predict that, given the average level of savings in advanced economies, many people currently in their mid-40s are likely to need to work into their early to mid-70s; many currently in their 20s (many of whom could live to be over 100) will be working into their late 70s, and even into their 80s.
