Falling behind already.
I changed my normal work days (Mon – Weds) to Mon, Tues, Friday which shook things up a little.
I had a few conversations with people about potential new events for Data Fest Fringe in Aberdeen. It looks like we could end up with 9 or 10 in total, which would blow last year’s two events out of the water.
I’ve continued to work on the data side for the IOT for schools project. It looks like the Google Sheets option may be too slow to write. We’re looking at alternatives.
We’ve also preparing more for Code The City 15 Air Quality event and putting the final touches to Code The City 16 event that we will host in March.
At Code The City we are building an ideas platform which is at beta testing stage. I’ve input the whole of the opportunities, challenges and ideas for CTC15 as they currently stand. We don’t have a public demo yet.
I’m still reading the first title for our virtual book club – more on that next week, if I get it finished!
On the Jazz front, I discovered that Jazz Journal (which has been going since the late 1940s) is moving to online only.
Benny Golson, the jazz musician at the centre of the Tom Hanks film, The Terminal, celebrated his 90th birthday on 25th January.
I was intrigued by this graphic of which literary and musical figures had sexual relationships. Surely a case for Linked Open Data!
I did some minor updates to wikipedia and wikidata, and took a couple of pictures for Open Benches, which I am trying to do regularly.
Note to self – keep better notes next week!
