Now attending the morning session, Sue Gardner speaking after a short intro by Jimmy Wales. - Daniel Mietchen
Wow, can you get a picture of you and Mark with Jimmy for S3? I know he is probable very busy, but it would be great promo and just cool! - joergkurtwegner
He seems gone now. - Daniel Mietchen
Question: Can we use a global mediawiki login as a unique "person identifier", something like ORCID for science http://twitter.com/#!... on a wiki level? Granular contributions are only traceable, if all identities are known on a global scale. - joergkurtwegner
Question: Can we use a global semantic wiki for collating user login (Twitter, FriendFeed) and person information, preferentially with RDF triplet endpoints for allowing other services to use this information. Aka, a kind of Wiki-FOAF-system?. - joergkurtwegner
Probably yes (save privacy issues) an anonymous version is just being displayed as Sue's screensaver: http://www.lkozma.net/wpv... . - Daniel Mietchen
Suggestion for an unconference session on a kind of chatroulette between Wikimedians and GLAM people did not find enough interest. Morning tea. - Daniel Mietchen
Now Tom Morgan: Wikipedia and the National Portrait Gallery - A bad first date? - Daniel Mietchen
Very good talk and discussion about the value and costs of culture in the sense of GLAM institutions and the open online culture movement. - Daniel Mietchen
@Daniel - Are the slides available for the "value and costs of culture" talk? - joergkurtwegner
Daniel, want to meet for lunch after your talk? I'm about 5 minutes away working in the library. - Tom Morris
@joerg probably not but some background is at http://www.npg.org.uk/about... . @tom yes. - Daniel Mietchen

The slow death of Dopplr | Technology | guardian.co.uk - http://www.guardian.co.uk/technol...
This is really quite sad. It is hardly a story to tell the children: when your startup grows up, it'll get bought by a many-tentacled mobile phone company who'll leave it as it is until the servers start rusting. - Tom Morris

Advice on using Ruby, RVM, Passenger, Rails, Bundler, … in development « Jérémy Lecour - http://jeremy.wordpress.com/2010...
I'm using most of these. If you want to do Rails, you should too. And if you are using Rails 3, you WILL be using Bundler, so it is worth learning about it. - Tom Morris

Learning from TED, SFAA and BarCamp | Savage Minds - http://savageminds.org/2009...
In the comments: "Today’s equivalent are the BarCamps and unconferences, almost Quaker-style meetings where everyone participates as peers with the goal of hammering out an idea or set of ideas that are an advance from what everyone entered the meeting with." - Tom Morris

Roadmap for Learning Rails | techiferous - http://techiferous.com/2010...
A very good guide to learning Rails: there are bits that I don't agree with though. W3Schools is not a good way to learn anything in my experience, let alone HTML. - Tom Morris

A somewhat useful reference: shows the syntax for folding (aka. inject, reduce) in Haskell, OCaml, F#, SML, Smalltalk, Perl, Python, Common Lisp, C#, C++ with STL, JavaScript 1.8, Scheme R6RS and PHP. - Tom Morris

Polyschizmatic Reprobates’ Hour » Season 2 Episode 4: Dr. Robert M. Price on the Apocalypse - http://www.reprobateshour.com/2007...
Interesting podcast. I love Robert M Price, but this does go into a bit of borderline climate change denialism at the end. - Tom Morris

My mum's laptop is made by Fujitsu. It is old and shit. They've put a damn password on the BIOS and won't tell me what it is. This looks like what I need to fix that. - Tom Morris

mini-itx.com - store - mini-itx cases - http://www.mini-itx.com/store...
Wow, Mini ITX cases (and Pico ITX) cases are pretty cheap these days. May have to build my own Mini ITX boxes - replace the giant desktop machine I'm using as a server - and maybe as a media center for my parents. - Tom Morris

Statically checked range types in Scala - David R. MacIver - http://www.drmaciver.com/2007...
This is one thing I see in Ada code samples that I wish I had in all statically typed languages: the ability to declare a variable contains an Int in a particular range. - Tom Morris

It wasn't working yesterday either, will try again... - Kol Tregaskes
Not working for me today. - Tom Morris
Nope, still not working here. I've not been able to use my saved searches for over a week now. Meaning my FriendFeed usage is waaay down as I rely on searches so much! :-( - Kol Tregaskes

jFireEagle is broken in various ways AFAICT. But it's worth reading the source code to see what sort of API they offer. I'm trying to write a Scala one at the moment, and I want to take the best stuff from all the different implementations. - Tom Morris

'Thanks for the iPad, guys, that's a neat touch' | Technology | The Observer - http://www.guardian.co.uk/technol...
Yet another bit of human exclusivity (i.e. using gadgets) may soon be disappearing. I can't wait until the dolphin-specific version of blogspot is filled up with rants about how much they hate the App Store approval process. - Tom Morris
