Awesome timeshifting graphing tool. Very nice!
"It has come to my attention that the music industry now wants royalties for those 30-second clips of music you hear in iTunes." Insanity! Great article.
"So in case it's of use to others who are thinking of doing the same, I've turned BIS's Twitter strategy into a generic template Twitter strategy for Departments" Quite useful for gov esp politicians. A little over the top if terms of risk mgmt, but very useful.
"As a preview it's rough around the edges, may your love for data guide you." – Lovely, interactive and mashable datasets publicly available. Really useful!
"data visualizations you just gotta love…" – Lovely blog for chart and data philes
"How does the government spend our money – and what would you cut? Click on the link to hear economics editor". UK Government spending in beautiful interactive format. Nice!

Welcome to my blog. It goes back a while and has my thoughts on all things technology, open government, FOSS and freedom. May contain traces of silliness and martial arts.
Check out my Gov 2.0 (open government) posts. They represent the bulk of my thinking and work at the moment.
These thoughts are my own.
