IPFS is a new peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol.

Sun, 09/13/2015 - 13:12 -- rprice

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a peer-to-peer distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, IPFS is similar to the Web, but IPFS could be seen as a single BitTorrent swarm, exchanging objects within one Git repository. In other words, IPFS provides a high throughput content-addressed block storage model, with content-addressed hyperlinks. This forms a generalized Merkle DAG, a data structure upon which one can build versioned file systems, blockchains, and even a Permanent Web.

JSON API - About

Wed, 08/19/2015 - 13:07 -- rprice

Some servers, like Firebase, Parse and CouchDB already define strict communication protocols for clients, and were good fits for Ember Data. In contrast, servers written in Rails, Node, and Django tend to be written in a "REST-style" but lack the precision necessary for drop-in client code. The REST Adapter in Ember Data implicitly defined a protocol that custom servers could implement to get a drop-in client for all of their resources.

Interview with Joshua Lee, IBIS | Opensource.com

Thu, 05/07/2015 - 08:53 -- rprice

To give a quick background of how IBIS works, the system grabs articles from different sources, which are either trusted or need human verification. These articles, once verified by a human or being from a trusted resource, can then be brought into the IBIS network for distribution to IBIS members. The human intervention on this system is kept low to allow for information to be reported quickly to biosecurity experts for decision making.

Keep testing different models and learn something new from your dataset. There is a way of thinking that treats visualization as a magical process that prettifies the output, yet the only way we can make a meaningful graph is when we discover something meaningful during our research. People are relying on us to see the world. Out of everyone, we are the ones who need to have these interesting tests / models / questions / hypotheses at hand because if we don't know the color “red,” our story will never have “red” in it.

Global cities of the future: An interactive map | McKinsey & Company

Fri, 09/12/2014 - 09:01 -- rprice

interactive global map below, which contains city-specific highlights from the McKinsey Global Institute’s database of more than 2,600 metropolitan areas around the world. You’ll see why growth strategies focused at the country level may fall short in the future: with new hot spots emerging and household wealth surging in little-known urban centers, companies may have to adopt a much finer-grained approach to tap into the growth that lies ahead.

Visualization API | drupal.org

Visualization is a module for Drupal 7.x that provides a solid and easy accessible way to visualize data. It provides a theme hook that takes a data array and some options and will then render a chart in-place. It also provides a Views Display plugin so that users can easily visualize data retrieved through Views. The different charting libraries are pluggable through the CTools Plugin system; the module provides an implementation for the Google Visualization API and Highcharts.
