Yesterday the W3C Social Web Working Group re-affirmed to use JSON-LD:
https://www.w3.org/Social/track/issues/21

This is an important decision for the future of Linked Data and the semantic web.
ISSUE-21: Role of JSON-LD and RDF. JSON-LD & RDF. Role of JSON-LD and RDF. State: CLOSED; Product: Raised by: Pavlik elf; Opened on: 2015-03-15; Description: As of now we seem to go in circles in our conversations about role of JSON-LD and RDF. Erik even wrote a blog post about it: "JSON or RDF?

More of the same in the United States a few hours ago (audio only). That is why the police is attacking reporters, photographers and representatives of Amnesty International:

How not to treat people living in a ghetto, a historical example.

http://www.yadvashem.org/yv/en/exhibitions/warsaw_ghetto/index.asp
Of particular note among the vast quantity of documentation pertaining to the Warsaw Ghetto found in various archives and libraries, is the tremendous number of photographs. There are photos portraying almost every aspect of life and death there. These photos fall into several categories: from amateur pictures, through photos taken by journalists and professional propagandists, to three-dimensional and color photos

I just sent this to a few specific mailing lists.

Dear all,

the deadline for GSoC 2015 student proposals is 27 March: 19:00 UTC.

Students interested in Linked Data (in particular Hydra, Linked Data Platform and Linked Data Fragments) can contact me (they should do so immediately).

Students should be self motivated and already know what Linked Data is about - because the time till the deadline is very limited.

Within the Apache Software Foundation such proposals would fit mostly to Apache Stanbol and Apache Marmotta.

I might be able to help as mentor or co-mentor and would like to see student proposals for Open Government and/or Social Media applications (ideal would be a proposal involving both topics ;-)

If there are others here interested in helping students to draft a proposal and implement it later: also contact me! Feel free to forward this mail.

Cheers,
Andreas

Recommended reading regarding Web APIs:

The Fallacy of the Multi-API Culture: Conceptual and Practical Benefits of Representational State Transfer (REST)
by Ruben Verborgh, Seth van Hooland, Aaron Straup Cope, Sebastian Chan, Erik Mannens, and Rik Van de Walle

The paper revisits a decade after its conception the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style and analyses its relevance to address current challenges from the Library and Information Science (LIS) discipline. Conceptual aspects of REST are reviewed and a generic architecture to support REST is presented. The relevance of the architecture is demonstrated with the help of a case-study based on the collection registration database of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. We argue that the “resources and representations” model of REST is a sustainable way for the management of Web resources in a context of constant technological evolutions. When making information resources available on the Web, a resource-oriented publishing model can avoid the costs associated with the creation of multiple interfaces. This paper re-examines the conceptual merits of REST and translates the architecture into actionable recommendations for the LIS discipline.

And as for Tor, it is expected to be leaking info once enough gateways are owned.

Doesn't take long to turn things around w/ the right leadership in place.

Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced. We have visited the site and gathered evidence. We have analysed fragments, examined craters and other damage. Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school, i...
