I’m tired of looking at websites. I want to use them.

Each time we visit a website, even a new website, we bang our heads against the sheer idiocy of the experience.

Corresponding in the social net

I must be getting old. I’ve been corresponding with a few people through Facebook’s messages and I’m finding the experience a little disheartening.

Why is Open Data difficult for Governments?

I’ve been asked this question a lot lately. And recently, a journalist asked me this during an interview for a story on his problem getting data on noise pollution from the Hong Kong Government. Christopher DeWolfe quoted me in the article, Hong Kong’s Silence on Noise Pollution.

Connecting to ConnectedChina

I attended a presentation today by Irene Jay Liu, news editor for Thomson Reuters and project leader and editor for ConnectedChina. It was a great demonstration of the app, especially since there is so much to see in the app. It is difficult to understand all its potential unless you see someone using it or you spend a lot of time with it.
