Interesting map of geographic density of Freebase topics
Description. This map shows the global distribution of geo-located entities described in Freebase, a collaborative knowledge base that defines itself as “an open shared database of the world's knowledge”. Data. Freebase forms one of the key informational ingredients in Google's Knowledge Graph.

Strange. They did a pretty rudimentary graphing of geolocations so they had a pretty picture to complement a silly complaint.

A lot of the geodata is US because the US government gives such data away in stark contrast to many other countries in the world including, I believe, China.

This distribution reflects government policy more than anything else.

Dan Primack on why Boston needs more tech media coverage
 
well said Dan
http://goo.gl/m8F2nK
Boston's tech startups are fighting an uphill battle against the national tech media. FORTUNE -- Care.com is expected to go public tomorrow night, making it the first Boston-area tech company to go public in more than 18 months. The last one was Exa Corp.

Sorry that I missed my fellow GDG organizers at this year's #NACommunitySummit at the Googleplex, but it looks like it was an awesome time.  Next year I'll make sure clients' schedules don't interfere!

As a former GSoC mentor, I highly recommend this program.  If you know any university students interested in software engineering and/or open source, please encourage them to apply.  Deadline is March 21, but don't wait!

Interesting that mutation towards lower lethality means more numerous carriers to spread the disease.
 
Using bits of human intestine stored in a Philadelphia medical museum in 1849, scientists have decoded the genes of an early form of cholera, the deadly diarrheal disease that first swept the globe just a few decades earlier.

The disease is still a lethal menace, as was shown in Haiti four years ago, when an unexpected outbreak after an earthquake killed more than 8,000 and hospitalized hundreds of thousands more. But it has evolved since the 19th-century pandemics, which killed millions; the new work, by scientists at McMaster University in Ontario, creates the first chance to study the genome of the pandemic “classical” strain and understand its roots.
Scientists in Ontario used bits of human intestine stored in a Philadelphia medical museum to map a cholera strain linked to 19th-century pandemics.

Interesting paper on signals which could be used to determine contribution quality in Freebase.

Of course, direct, unpaid volunteer contributions are only a tiny fraction of the overall total, lagging far behind the machine ingestion from Wikipedia, MusicBrainz, etc and the Google-paid contractors.
 
If you've ever wondered how Google determines which data to trust in Freebase, this research paper gives a rare glimpse into one of the algorithms used to estimate the quality of individual contributions.
