EFF Releases - Protect Yourself From Electronic Spying with "Surveillance Self-Defense
https://ssd.eff.org/

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) launched its updated "Surveillance Self-Defense" report today, a comprehensive how-to guide to protecting yourself from electronic spying for Internet users all over the world. "Everyone has something to protect, whether its from the government or stalkers or data-miners," said EFF International Director Danny O'Brien. "Surveillance Self-Defense will help you think through your personal risk factors and concerns--is it an authoritarian government you need to worry about, or an ex-spouse, or your employer?--and guide you to appropriate tools and practices based on your specific situation." Surveillance Self-Defense includes briefings on important security issues, tutorials on using specific privacy software like PGP and OTR, and guides for specific categories of users, like human rights activists or journalism students. People who are just beginning to upgrade their communications privacy can choose the "Security Starter Pack." "The Internet and other electronic communications have empowered people all over the globe to speak out and make connections in world-changing ways," said EFF Director for International Freedom of Expression Jillian York. "But this has also opened new opportunities for tracking and exposure. Surveillance Self-Defense will teach you to think critically about your Internet use and make good choices even as the technology changes around you." Surveillance Self-Defense was first launched in 2009, aimed at educating Americans about the law and technology of communications surveillance. The new report expands, revises, and updates the old guide for use across the globe with support from the Ford Foundation. EFF spoke and worked with experts and activists from across the world, from MIT to the Middle East, in developing the guide. The entire Surveillance Self-Defense project is available in English, Spanish, and Arabic, with more languages available soon. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.

EEXCESS - Enhancing Europe’s eXchange in Cultural Educational and Scientific reSources
http://eexcess.eu/

EEXCESS is a research project funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007‐2013) under grant agreement n° 600601. Its vision is to unfold the treasure of cultural, educational and scientific long-tail content for the benefit of all users. EEXCESS stands for: Enhancing Europe’s eXchange in Cultural Educational and Scientific reSources. Through personalised and contextualised recommendation technologies we aim to enrich existing content dissemination channels users habitually use (e.g. social media) and content creation techniques users regularly conduct (e.g. writing blog entries). In order to ensure high quality recommendations we emphasize the integration of knowledge from memory organisations as well as the analysis of user behaviour and content consumption patterns. As the latter raises serious privacy protection issues, we will develop methods for retaining users’ privacy while offering the full range of personalisation. Key objectives include: a) Enrichment of Content; b) Personalised Recommendation; and c) Privacy Preservation. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

ConnectED Initiative
http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education/k-12/connected

In June 2013, President Obama announced the ConnectED initiative, designed to enrich K-12 education for every student in America. ConnectED empowers teachers with the best technology and the training to make the most of it, and empowers students through individualized learning and rich, digital content. Preparing America’s students with the skills they need to get good jobs and compete with other countries relies increasingly on interactive, personalized learning experiences driven by new technology. Yet fewer than 30% of America’s schools have the broadband they need to teach using today’s technology. Under ConnectED, however, 99% of American students will have access to next-generation broadband by 2017. That connectivity will help transform the classroom experience for all students, regardless of income. The President also directed the federal government to make better use of existing funds to get Internet connectivity and educational technology into classrooms, and into the hands of teachers trained on its advantages. And he called on businesses, states, districts, schools, and communities to support this vision, which requires no congressional action. Following the 2014 State of the Union address, the President announced major progress on the initiative, highlighting commitments by the FCC and the private sector.

Mobile devices, social networks, micro-blogging and location sharing are just a few of the ways people engage in computer-mediated collective action. Mapping, measuring and understanding the landscape of social media is our mission. We support tool projects that enable the collection, analysis and visualization of social media data. We host data sets that are relevant to social media research. And we will support graduate students studying and building research related to social media. Today, their primary project is NodeXL, the free and open network overview discovery and exploration add-in for Excel 2007 (and 2010 and 2013) that extends the familiar spreadsheet so that it can collect, analyze and visualize complex social networks. They plan to take on additional projects that improve the variety and quality of data available to the NodeXL social network analysis platform (among others that consume the open GraphML format).

Open Knowledge
https://okfn.org/

They believe open knowledge can empower everyone, enabling people to work together to tackle local and global challenges, understand our world, expose inefficiency and challenge inequality and hold governments and companies to account. Open Knowledge is a worldwide non-profit network of people passionate about openness, using advocacy, technology and training to unlock information and enable people to work with it to create and share knowledge. They want to see enlightened societies around the world, where everyone has access to key information and the ability to use it to understand and shape their lives; where powerful institutions are comprehensible and accountable; and where vital research information that can help tackle challenges such as poverty and climate change is available to all. They envision a world where: a) knowledge creates power for the many, not the few; b) data frees us to make informed choices about how we live, what we buy and who gets our vote; and c) information and insights are accessible – and apparent – to everyone. This is the world that is chosen. They want to see open knowledge being a mainstream concept, and as natural and important to our everyday lives and organizations as green is today. Open Knowledge central features: 1) International network: We support, encourage and coordinate an international network of individuals passionate about openness and active in making, training and advocating; 2) Opening up information: We advocate and campaign for open release of key information, particularly at national or large scale, and we monitor the level of openness worldwide; 3) Impact through information: We help people learn about openness and gain data skills, and we partner with change-making organisations aligned with our key themes to help them use open data to accelerate their work, creating positive change towards our goals, stories and case studies; 4) Stewardship: a home for projects and communities: helping nurture and support efforts to open up data and see it used for positive change; and 5) Services and consulting: We offer commercial technology services, consultancy and training to help openness reach its full potential.
