My friend and fellow National Geographic Emerging Explorer +Steve Boyes  is in the midst of an 18-day expedition into the Okavango Delta - one of the world's richest wildlife areas.

We convinced Steve to let us build an API around the expedition, which allows anyone anywhere to access the data they are collecting - wildlife counts - along with position data and biometrics of the team members.

This is really exciting to me, as it connects us not only to the visual experience of the expedition, but also to the data that they've set out to collect.

We've put up a website - http://intotheokavango.org - where you can follow along with the progress of the expedition. We'll be adding more features as the expedition progresses, including sound and images, and interface to see trends and patterns among the wildlife sightings that are being recorded.

Data folks can connect to the API, which serves up GeoJSON in different flavours here: http://intotheokavango.org/api

Big thanks to +Brian House who build most (all) of the back-end and to Ian Ardouin-Fumat, who made the interface look as great as it does.

We're hiring a 'Maker' here at the New York Times R&D Lab.

This is a fairly unusual job description. We need someone who can build prototypes and research projects that can be software and/or hardware based. We want someone who can push the limits of JavaScript on a Tuesday, and build a Kinect-enabled installation using Arduino on Wednesday. Robots, shaders, screwdrivers, and sensors.

NYTLabs is a great place to work. Yes, we have a killer office, with 20 foot tall windows and a view of the East River. But it's the people that really make it - people like Mark Hansen, +Brian House, +Agnes Chang, Alexis Lloyd and Matt Boggie. This is a fantastically creative group.

If you're an Art/Tech person who is looking for something new, check out the job description below, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions:
