The Datamirror.org Experiment: Preservation Assurance for Federal Research Data – UC3 :: California Digital Library
"In early 2017, UC3 created Datamirror.org as an independent, dynamic, online mirror of Data.gov, the US federal government’s primary research data portal. Developed in collaboration with Code for Science & Society (CSS), a non-profit organization supporting innovative uses of technology for public good, Datamirror was intended to provide additional levels of assurance that the significant research data found at Data.gov remains freely accessible to the scholarly community and the public for open retrieval and reuse. As noted by the government’s Project Open Data initiative, “Data is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset to the U.S. Government, its partners, and the Public.” Thus, Datamirror.org plays a critical role in protecting this valuable resource from risks of data loss or loss of availability due to technological obsolescence, funding constraints, shifting organizational priorities, malicious attack, or inadvertent error.

RECOMMENDED: Computation in Conversation ← dh+lib
"I want to talk today about some of the current work happening around collections as data and some of the challenges that are holding us back from a collections as data revolution, but I really want to focus on how we as data producers can build better relationships and start productive conversations around our own libraries and how being more inclusive about who we invite into our data design and publishing processes can help us generate more usable datasets and further creative and responsible data reuse by our patrons and staff alike.

Data, a first-class research output
" The Make Data Count (MDC) project is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to develop and deploy the social and technical infrastructure necessary to elevate data to a first-class research output alongside more traditional products, such as publications. It will run between May 2017 and April 2019. The project will address the significant social as well as technical barriers to widespread incorporation of data-level metrics in the research data management ecosystem through consultation, recommendation, new technical capability, and community outreach. Project work will build upon long-standing partner initiatives supporting research data management and DLM, leverage prior Sloan investments in key technologies such as Lagotto, and enlist the cooperation of the research, library, funder, and publishing stakeholder communities."

Data Privacy Project – Initiatives to inform and support libraries and librarians
"The Digital Privacy and Data Literacy Project (or “Data Privacy Project”) teaches NYC library staff how information travels and is shared online, what risks users commonly encounter online, and how libraries can better protect patron privacy. Its trainings help support libraries’ increasing role in empowering their communities in a digital world. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the project is led by a team of library professionals, researchers, tech experts, and community activists interested in the impact of technological advances on everyone, especially the most vulnerable populations in the U.S. "

Calling Bullshit
"The world is awash in bullshit. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. Higher education rewards bullshit over analytic thought. Startup culture elevates bullshit to high art. Advertisers wink conspiratorially and invite us to join them in seeing through all the bullshit — and take advantage of our lowered guard to bombard us with bullshit of the second order. The majority of administrative activity, whether in private business or the public sphere, seems to be little more than a sophisticated exercise in the combinatorial reassembly of bullshit. We're sick of it. It's time to do something, and as educators, one constructive thing we know how to do is to teach people. So, the aim of this course is to help students navigate the bullshit-rich modern environment by identifying bullshit, seeing through it, and combating it with effective analysis and argument."

Political behaviour and the acoustics of social media : Nature Human Behaviour
"Social networks are not a new phenomenon — people have always associated with like-minded others — but the advent of social media has led to a vast increase in the amount of social information that we see. We need data and experiments to understand how this information shapes our political landscape."
