    Open Science / Access online meetup

    Date June 3 2015 12.00pm – 2:00pm (CEST (UTC+02))
    Location Online, sign up here https://pad.okfn.org/p/nodw_open_access_science_online_meetup if you want to participate
    Price Free
    Official site https://pad.okfn.org/p/nodw_open_access_science_online_meetup

    Welcome to the open access/science online meetup on Wednesday 3rd june 12cet/13fin time, as part of the Nordic Open Data Week ( http://nordicopendataweek.se ).

    A main point to Nordic cooperation and NODW, also part of this talk, is that we can learn from one another around the Nordics, and bring one another to the highest common denominator in various open data areas. In the Nordics, we’re similar enough to cooperate but different enough to be able to learn from our different paths.

    A suggested meetup agenda looks like this
    ( feel free to add things you think are important! ):

    • What’s the status/challenge for particular components of open science in respective countries? Can we identify bottlenecks in OA, open research data etc.?
    • Developing a vision for open science in the Nordic countries –> declaration of some sort? Endorsement?
    • Something you might want to add – feel free to add it to the etherpad below!

    If you’d to take part, you’ll find more details and a sign-up in this etherpad;

    Sometimes the best way to tackle the big questions is obliquely, and in motion.

    The Living Archives project celebrates Nordic Open Data Week by inviting you to generate a digital encryption key using your own gestures and movements. Encryption keys are pieces of code used to protect or access data that are usually produced randomly by computers. However randomness is becoming increasingly more difficult. This workshop will explore whether the body has the potential to activate computational processes that are unique.

    Please, sign up!

    Why?
    If the downside of perpetual archiving is perpetual surveillance, then bodily encryption practices are part of an overarching strategy for controlling and disseminating personal data. Yes, we support Open Data – but when the data come from your body it is sometimes necessary to decide what is open, for whom, and when.

    Trace the body in the algorithm, reaffirm physical presence in Big Data, and see if your digital encryption key feels more like yours if it was generated as a duet between your movement improvisation and computational processes.

    How?
    This is a beta-stage interaction design experiment that inserts movement into the generation of a digital encryption key by replacing the mouse movement of a standard encryption program with motion data captured by a Kinect.

    You don’t have to be a dancer: is there a pattern of movements that might be associated with you? Hand, arms, body moving in space, inverted, idiosyncratic … You can perform these in the studio for capture by the Kinect, either with others watching or in private.

    What will you get?
    You will leave the workshop with your private encryption key. We will also give you an encrypted file of the video of your movement as an archival trace of your improvisation. Your movement will be archived both in the key and in the video. You can use the key to de-crypt the video of your own movement, or you can use it for other data communication.

    And the research?
    As this is part of research into the performance of memory, the last hour (from 15:00-16:00) of this workshop will be devoted to critical and creative discussion around Encryption, Openness, Bodies and Memory in the performances of data and the performances of daily life.

    Join Trafiklab for an evening at Commutathon!

    Welcome to a meetup with Trafiklab on Commutathon, a hackathon, with the aim of developing concepts to facilitate the daily commuting for Stockholmers with mobile services. The Hackathon is arranged by Swedish Radio along with OpenLab, Trafik Stockholm, Stockholm and Trafiklab. You can read more about it here! The hack will be held on OpenLab on 10 to 12 June and Trafiklab will run a meetup on 10 June.

    We have a terrible good agenda – more on that coming soon at Traffic Labs blog. (Psst! Among other things, Ellen Sundh invite us in the sensor world and tell us how we can combine the data collected with the physical machines and discover the unpredictability of APIs and data around us).

    During the evening you will meet other developers and APIs owners who would like to hear about what you’ve done with data from Trafiklab. We offer something light to eat and drink during the evening.

    Have you developed something cruel based on Traffic Lab data you want to show off or talk about? Send an email to linnea.bjorkman@samtrafiken.se and tell us!

    Limited seats. First come first served! sign up here! (in Swedish)

    See you!

    Consider yourselves very welcome to this Nordic Open Data Week event, if you’re into mydata.

    MyData ONLINE Hangout – 2nd June 11 central european time
    email miskak@gmail.com to participate, we meet on skype or hangout. details to be announced if you email.

    Welcome to a hangout of MyData interested people in the Nordics – and beyond – hosted by Open Knowledge Finland. We look forward to meeting others and hearing what else happens in the Nordic region concerning My Data, and perhaps collaborate.

    MyData is a human-centered approach to personal information management and processing. It gives people the right and practical means to access to data collected about them such as purchasing data, traffic data, telecommunications data, medical records, financial information and data derived from various online services. The simple core idea, the individual in control of their own data, is both a movement for digital human rights and an initiative for opening new business opportunities.

    MyData is a global phenomenon and the future scenario, around which technology and business is being developed at a growing pace. In Finland the ministry of Transportation and Communication published a white paper on MyData in 2014 (english summary in june 2015) and the national development has been fast since. Currently we are looking for Nordic collaborations.

    Welcome!

    all the best,

    miska

    Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting in cooperation with e-delegetionen, samtrafiken and several others, invites you to a day of reflection. During the day we’ll reflect on three areas that are described below in detail.

    The target group for the three areas are people who works with open data in the public sector.

    Increased exchange of experience between public stakeholders with open data

    The network has existed since fall 2014. In december we held a workshop where we, for instance, created a working group that should take on the material from the workshop and event, and look further into questions about how to best organise the work. During spring the group has met a number of times, and we have reached a proposition.

    This is why we want to invite you (and others that might have an interest in this) to a networking day during “Offentliga rummet” (“The Public Space”) in Visby on Monday June 1.

    The proposal from the working group is, in broad terms, to establish a number of National collaboration forums within open data. It is our hope that we can attach these forums to Riksarkivet (The National Archive) as part of their tasks within open data (following the E-delegationen).

    Our proposal is, for starters, to form the following collaboration forums

    • Licenses and terms of reuse. Questions about the choice of licenses, other types of terms concerning the use of data or data providing services (like SLA).
    • User benefits and understanding of the needs of “data customers” (data consumers). How do we create attractive data sets that matches existing needs? How do we establish good dialogue with users of open data? How can we contribute to make open data provide benefits?
    • Technology – Systems for making open data accessible (and visualisations of open data). Questions surrounding technical solutions that aim at making open data more accessible, and how we can present the data we provide.
    • Thematic groups within ”Common structure, terms and concepts”. How can we agree on common data structures, terms and concepts across different domains? It’s the ambition to create additional different working groups with responsibility for different domains, based on interest and demand.
    • Education and skills within open data. Exchange of experience with training within the fields. Common training efforts and activities that improves skills within the open data field.
    • How to motivate using open data within your company? Cooperation around good cases and activities that can be performed jointly, to motivate using open data internally. How do you get started?

    Leading up to the networking day, we would like to know if you have any interest of participating in any of these forums (or if you have any suggestions to a different grouping). We would appreciate if you can answer the questions that you’ll find using this link: Nationella samverkansarenor inom Öppna data (National collaboration forums within open data) (in Swedish)

    You’re welcome to use the form even if you can’t make it on June 1, in order to receive further information.
