  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. THe HOW 1.Data - citability.org 2.people - FSN 3.connections - Connect the dots
  8. 8. Citability.org • Adrian’s slide deck from http://citability.org
  9. 9. Citability.org part 2 • A movement...
  10. 10. Citation • atomic / unique • open / Accessible • Accountable • permanence
  11. 11. Atomic • hundreds of pages documents that change frequently • documentation requires things be citable on a paragraph level just like BOOKS
  12. 12. Unique • Unique ID makes the internet into a database • Verifiable • Searchable on identifier
  13. 13. Accessibility • URL standard makes it parseable • markup standards also makes it understandable • anything a computer reads and understands -> blind can too!
  14. 14. Easy of Use • human readable • Example: Http://archive.house.gov/ HR1586IH/20030318093016#S1b1cii • The example would point to section 1, subsection b, chapter 1, paragraph c, clause ii in HR1586 on Mar 18, 2003 at 09:30:16 am UTC
  15. 15. Accountability • date/time stamp • hashes - show changes • end to link rot
  16. 16. permanence • Date/time stamp • makes citations VALID • fights link rot • makes the internet into Database for a Versioning System
  17. 17. intellectual honesty • public can watch changes
  18. 18. Reputation • the website becomes accountable for what it publishes
  19. 19. Open • WestLaw problem • Lexus nexus problem • Open to Everyone - anyone w a free blog account can converse
  20. 20. Websites • alpha-numeric in background • table of contents • Purple numbers • doesn’t matter just needs to be on paragraph basis (even just count <p> tags!)
  21. 21. Global • So simple • it is also global • most tweets OUTSIDE the US!
  22. 22. How • drupal -> • already does pretty URLs (most CMS do) • quickfix -> • 2 lines of javascript • one DNS redirect for archive.house.gove • archive server scrapes and formats
  23. 23. Next step • Drupal Codeathon in Paris • fundraise 25K to have archive server software created for archive.org • NYSenate.gov is done in drupal • recovery.gov is done in drupal • HINT HINT!
  24. 24. Step 2: FSN • free and open source social network • allows groups to have private Social network • aggregate persona for reputation
  25. 25. replacement • studies show people do not join more than 1 or 2 social networks • who has time to deal with that much communication? • how to solve that problem?
  26. 26. My aggregate persona • Legislative liaison for ACLU • Legislative liaison for EFF • Board of directors for texas Assoc of Nonprofit Organization • founder of league of technical Voters • Linked in profile
  27. 27. Reputation • check and see who I am
  28. 28. later... • look at your profile • look at others profiles • calculated % chance you will agree with them • make up your own mind!
  29. 29. next step? • talking with several businesses interested in business model • business own their data instead of facebook • DNC - solves networking issues among competitive groups
  30. 30. Step 3: Connect the dots
  31. 31. 5 Paragraphs in telecom bill banning Muni Wi-FI 5 permalinks done Citability.org style for those paragraphs in the texas Telecom Bill Senate Bill 5 Title Section Subsection Chapter Paragraph http://archive.house.us.tx/178legislature/SB5IH/20040521120000#SB5IH5B3b2ii
  32. 32. Senate Subcommitee Senator 1 Senator 4 Senator 2 Senator 3 scraped from the Texas legislature site - again can be sited w advanced permalinks and date time stamped for when committees change
  33. 33. 5 Paragraphs banning WiFI Sub- Sen 4 committee Sen 3 Sen 1 Sen 2 An individual can make this BLUE link or we can derive it from the fact that this bill is assigned to this sub-committee or from sponsorships - the point is this link can be fuzzy and doesn’t have to be sponsor only but can be verifiable with Advanced permalink style citations (and parser doesn’t have to do all the work)
  34. 34. Donor 1 for 100K Senator 1 Donor 6 for 70K Donor 2 for 100k Donor 5 for 100K Donor 3 for 125k Donor 4 for 5k Someone can add their data to the database like maplight. maplight also implements advanced permalinks ala citability.org and therefore their work becomes citable (and they become responsible for validity)
  35. 35. SBC Board of Directors Donor 1 Donor 5 Donor 2 Donor 3 Another group adds the information to the database. Again using advanced permalinks ala citability they then become responsible for the validity of the information
  36. 36. 5 paragraphs Sub Sen 4 committee Sen 1 Sen 3 Sen 2 D1 at 100 D2 at 100 D3 at 125 D5 at 100 Senator 1 has 425K from SBC related interests SBC anyone can come in a make the BLUE connections to show a POSSIBLE path of influence. with the FOSSN we can calculate the percentage chance you will think this is accurate based on your social network of people and groups. In other words if you believe theworkforyou, maplight, the government there is a greater chance you will agree with this pathway. Also we allow individuals to vote on this. So if a bunch of your friends vote it as important it is more likely to show up on your profile as something to check out.
  37. 37. Any piece of info •Who entered it (link to profile) •date •citation •Reputation rating tags •validated BY •Group associations •Action desired •other tags etc... every piece of data not just the atomic citable datacircles but the CONNECTIONS have information connected to it. These help in the calculations of percentage chance of relevance.
  38. 38. Visualization tools • metaweb.com • IBM - many eyes • berkman center • apture • reframeit • wiki mindmaps
  39. 39. questions!
  40. 40. Live wiki editing http://Citability.pbworks.com
