Freenet History The origin of Freenet can be traced to Ian Clarke's student project at the University of Edinburgh, which he completed as a graduation requirement in the Summer of 1999. Ian Clarke's resulting unpublished report "A distributed decentralized information storage and retrieval system" (1999) provided foundation for the seminal paper written in collaboration with other researchers, "Freenet: A Distributed Anonymous Information Storage and Retrieval System" (2001). According to CiteSeer, it became one of the most frequently cited computer science articles in 2002. The distributed data store of Freenet is used by many third-party programs and plugins to provide microblogging and media sharing, anonymous, decentralised version tracking, blogging, a generic web of trust for decentralized spam resistance, Shoeshop for using Freenet over Sneakernet, and many more.

reveal.js - The HTML Presentation Framework HTML Presentations Made Easy Created by Hakim El Hattab / @hakimel Heads Up The Good Country Index The Good Country Index, a new way of looking at the world. The idea of the Good Country Index is pretty simple: to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organisations, we’ve given each country a balance-sheet to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between.

17 Services for Managing Cloud Storage Free cloud storage – while we all love getting something for free, managing the storage allocation from different providers can soon become a pain in the rear. Whether you use 5 or 6 main providers or grab all the free cloud storage you can get, you don’t want to have to login to 20 different sites every time you want to move or sync a file. Luckily, there’s an answer in the many services that have sprung up to help you manage multiple cloud storage services. How Cloud Storage Managers Work Before we get into the nitty gritty of the services themselves, let’s take a look at how they usually work. It’s usually a three step process: Puppy Training Articles I wrote this article to help new puppy owners wade through the sea of information on our web site and frankly, on the internet.

The missing women you don’t hear about: How the media fails Indigenous communities On July 5, 2013, Hanna Harris, a member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe, was reported missing by her family in Lame Deer, Mont. After search efforts by community members and law enforcement, she was found dead five days later. While there was some coverage of the disappearance and death of Harris, the media initially took the opportunity to focus on her use of peyote for ceremonial practices or to suggest her death was the result of drug use. The Lame Deer tribal authorities were initially responsible for taking the missing persons complaint and assisting with the search, and according to the family were not quick to act (the authorities have not responded to Salon’s request for comment). The FBI, which has federal authority over reservations in cases of murder, has said it needs more information and testimonies from others before being able to move forward with the Hanna Harris case. The media routinely fail to inform the public accurately about the cases of missing indigenous women.
SPARQL SPARQL (pronounced "sparkle", a recursive acronym for SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language) is an RDF query language, that is, a semantic query language for databases, able to retrieve and manipulate data stored in Resource Description Framework format. It was made a standard by the RDF Data Access Working Group (DAWG) of the World Wide Web Consortium, and is recognized as one of the key technologies of the semantic web. On 15 January 2008, SPARQL 1.0 became an official W3C Recommendation, and SPARQL 1.1 in March, 2013. SPARQL allows for a query to consist of triple patterns, conjunctions, disjunctions, and optional patterns. Implementations for multiple programming languages exist. "SPARQL will make a huge difference" making the web machine-readable according to Sir Tim Berners-Lee in a May 2006 interview. Advantages
