san diego fires, a concerned citizen
and Twitter, flickr, and mashups
SMS and Cell phones
A friend of ours, Nate, who lives in San Diego started publishing up to date information regarding the San
Diego ﬁres. The kind of stuff that you could really only ﬁnd out by being there, searching around the net for
every piece of information possible and having access to the right information feeds...
In fact, he is probably sending out a tweet every couple of minutes with updates on shelters that are ﬁlling up,
links to photos taken by locals, places where you can send donations, etc. Nate was able, through Twitter, to
actually help individuals ﬁnd out speciﬁc information about their loved ones in the area. It was like having our
very own newscaster.
What was even more signiﬁcant was that the LAFD, who have a twitter account, had tweeted earlier that they
were not covering the ﬁres as it was out of their jurisdiction and, from what we could tell, there wasn’t a twitter
account set up for the San Diego department. That being said, if there WERE, we would have expected them
to be ﬁghting the ﬁres, not stopping to twitter every couple of minutes. This type of partnership with a
concerned citizen who can deliver this information is one of the amazing things that happens time and time

The UK OPSI, is working on having referenceable URIs in every section of every document it publishes and is working on publishing the London
Gazette in RDF form and using Semantic Web technology in deﬁning small notices. This could act as a root leading to a trunk of data-mashing and
ﬂowering of utility.

OpenSocial - Brad Fitzpatrick
“OpenSocial is a set of common application programming interfaces (APIs) for web-based social network applications, developed by Google, and
released November 1, 2007. Applications implementing the OpenSocial APIs will be interoperable with any social network system that supports
them, including features on sites such as MySpace and Friendster.”

don’t worry about this just make sure your tech guys know!
“Many luxury cars today come with a valet key. It is a special key you give the parking attendant and unlike your regular key, will not allow the car
to drive more than a mile or two. Some valet keys will not open the trunk, while others will block access to your onboard cell phone address book.
Regardless of what restrictions the valet key imposes, the idea is very clever. You give someone limited access to your car with a special key, while
using your regular key to unlock everything.
Everyday new website offer services which tie together functionality from other sites. A photo lab printing your online photos, a social network using
your address book to look for friends, and APIs to build your own desktop application version of a popular site. These are all great services – what
is not so great about some of the implementations available today is their request for your username and password to the other site. When you
agree to share your secret credentials, not only you expose your password to someone else (yes, that same password you also use for online
banking), you also give them full access to do as they wish. They can do anything they wanted – even change your password and lock you out.
This is what OAuth does, it allows the you the User to grant access to your private resources on one site (which is called the Service Provider), to
another site (called Consumer, not to be confused with you, the User). While OpenID is all about using a single identity to sign into many sites,
OAuth is about giving access to your stuff without sharing your identity at all (or its secret parts).”
The real reason...
I use many pictures of children in this prezo...
because this is the reality of whose system this will be and who will be using it in the future. We
have to plan for them and understand the newer generation that is adopting these systems
worldwide at an amazing rate.
