No more silence in the library

Public libraries have evolved into vibrant community hubs in the digital era

"Nobody says, 'Wow, this not a good use of our money,' because we did this community consultation and the community told us, 'This is what we want,'"

http://www.torontosun.com/2014/05/29/no-more-silence-in-the-library
When you can buy books for cheap on Amazon and research anything online from the comfort of your home, it's easy to dismiss public libraries as dying institutions, crumbling museums for dusty old texts.

The libraries have all the latest technologies in reading and research, not to mention access to information via the internet.  All you need is a library card.

Tampa/Hillsborough County, Florida Libraries have it all.  All of their neighborhood libraries are a frequent stop for all in the area.

Philips will install LED lights in the city at no upfront cost

Through monitoring and maintaining the lights, Philips will deliver the solution as a service which will be paid for by its own energy savings. Because of this saving, WMATA is able to upgrade the city's infrastructure while avoiding any long term impact to capital and operating budgets.

Brighton chose a different model, but the citizens of Brighton don't know the details as Councillors Kerr, Rittwage, Rowley and Deputy Mayor Vandertoorn voted to keep the details of the deal secret. Why? If our they are spending our $'s why do we not have a right to see the numbers??

What we do know is that we will be borrowing approximately $500,000 at 2.99% over 10 years to install the LED lights.

Without transparency there is no hope of accountability!

DON’T GEO-TAG PICS OF ENDANGERED WILDLIFE, TOURISTS WARNED

While it's human nature to want to share and preserve amazing wildlife experiences, poachers have cottoned on to the geo-tag fingerprint left by unsuspecting tourists who visit wildlife parks and reserves. By not turning off the geo-tagging options (the meta data saved with your image that displays latitude and longitude coordinates for where the photo was taken) you are indirectly leading poachers to their intended prey. 

While animals at risk include gorillas and elephants, it is the rhino that teeters dangerously close to brink of extinction. The latest figures for Rhino poaching released by the Department of Environmental Affairs in April 2014 show that 294 rhinos have been poached.

Some people are even geo-tagging their pictures intentionally. A PetaPixel article on the risk of geo-tagged photos details how young couples pose as tourists and purposefully geo-tag their pics as part of a poaching syndicate.

Time for digital innovation to render Geo tagging defunct in certain areas. I'd support no photos (safaris have a professional photographer each ride who can share photos, but whose tagging is off). Sad, but it sounds like it is time for that in order to save a species.

From brownfield to entrepreneurial hub

“The cities doing the incubators and accelerators are retaining their youth,” said Pilon, owner of BPE Development Inc. “You talk about a catalyst in the area. You'll have 200 to 300 people working in that area and they'll be looking to live in the area.”

I'd watch out for that developer.  He's in for the tax breaks.  It's hard to make a come back for these dinosaurs, but I think adaptive use is a great idea.  The developer benefits, but for the public to foot the bill in any way should be limited.  Not another tax burden.

The focus should be on the use of the structure, that is, an incubator for the development of small businesses.

100 Ideas to Help Engage Your Community Online

http://www.scribd.com/doc/96124987/100-Ideas-to-Help-Engage-Your-Community-Online-For-Lulu

"This short booklet was put together by the Bang the Table team in 2010 to kick start your thinking about online community engagement.

After hosting something like 200 consultations for over 80 organisations since 2007, we’ve had our fair share of experience. It’s this experience that has helped us to develop our “100 ideas” handbook.

We’ve written it with the time poor in mind – the time poor being our most important online audience. And we’ve tried to walk the line; creating a resource that will help you get up and running online, without weighing you down with too much information.

We hope it will prove useful for people working across a range of sectors; community engagement, public relations, communications, Government 2.0 Strategy and project management.

A few of our ideas are controversial, many are common sense; we hope all will help you navigate across this new and burgeoning field of online community engagement."

Economic Opportunity & Small-Scale Manufacturing

"The time is ripe for policy change and private sector investment to create this kind of development. The demand for small-scale consumer goods and locally made custom goods are growing, while access to tools and technology gets cheaper. We need to provide affordable space for our local producers to grow their businesses in our city neighborhoods. By doing this, we will be able to connect more people to good-paying jobs, strengthen our small business and startup sectors, and keep these jobs in the city."
