ethnosproject Updates 12/30/11: Added Archon, Kete, and Open Exhibits. 5/12/12: Added DAITSS, DPSP, HOPPLA, and RODA. 6/8/12: Added Vannotea & Indigenous Knowledge Management Software. 5/13/13: Added ELAN. In honor of the new year, I thought I’d offer a list of (now 29) free and open source digital curation, asset management & community archiving systems that may be of interest to communities (Indigenous or not) seeking to sustain and share words, images, videos, sounds, collections, etc. These tools are free in that you can download the source files onto your computer without cost. I do not offer reviews of them (the text below is from their respective websites), although I have installed, experimented with and customized several of them. A few caveats: I included a few items below that don’t exactly fit the title of this post… WordPress is listed although it is a blogging platform and content management system (CMS) and not technically a curation, asset management or community archiving tool.

Semantic Views Module for Drupal 6 - Video Tutorial | Drupal Themes & Design The Semantic Views module for Drupal 6 allows you to easily insert HTML markup for your Views rows and fields. This is a new module by bangpound and I think this is really going to change how we think about theming Views because for the first time it puts clean semantic Views output in the hands of site builders and other end users, without having to get their hands dirty in the templates. Semantic markup is intrinsic to good accessibility, SEO, if not the development of the web as whole. It can also make theming a lot easier—we no longer need to litter our stylehsheets with all those extra classes. I can see this module becoming a big part of our theme development, both for client and commercial themes, where we can provide a Views export module. Usage is quite strait forward. 1. 2. Heres a quick and dirty vid showing how to use the Semantic Views module.

tuto Impure Impure is a new programming language designed to give non-programmers access to professional tools for data visualization. Users can use it to process and display data from social media feeds, financial information and more. Unlike Processing, a simple programming language for data visualization and art, Impure is a completely visual language - there's no need to learn any code. Above is a sceenshot of Impure being used to process a Twitter feed. Although it's targeted at non-programmers, some basic programming knowledge would clearly be useful. Given the data deluge that many enterprise face, easy tools for data visualization should be in high demand - especially in areas like social monitoring. For some background on the joys of data visualization, check out this TED talk.
