So, let's take a look at the latest #ContactTracing effort to emerge: - not an app, but 'components' to build apps & systems.

(There's so many tracers popping up now, it's getting like the rash of #COVID19 #SymptomSurveys that broke out last week...)

Nice to hear that @PeppPt "embrace a fully #privacy-preserving approach". So what exactly is it? (The devil, of course, is always in the detail...)

Ah! Here we are, "a brief description of our #privacy enforcing flow":

First, #AnonymousIdentifiers. Good. (And precisely what we recommended:…)

This really is a no-brainer; anyone proposing to use persistent #deviceIDs at this point is plainly a clueless numpty. Or actively seeking to #surveille.

@GOVUK and @GDSTeam launched a service to help extremely vulnerable people get help during the #coronavirus pandemic this week.

Initial commit: 4:22pm Thursday
Live service: 10:53am Monday

Incredible work by an incredible team.

A thread about the tech:
Thursday: we're going to build a form. It's got to be live very soon - there's a letter ready to post, and if the service isn't live when people get the letter...
The form sounds fairly bread-and-butter, but GOV.UK is mostly content, not forms. So how? Government has a few low-code form builders, but GDS don't have a preferred one. We spoke to @MoJGovUK about theirs, and looked closely at a few others.

Pl retweet >> Ventilator, the lifesavers in #Covid19 epidemic r hugely in short supply. @sonalasthana is a leading surgeon @ Aster Healthcare, Bangalore. He's driving an effort into 3D printing of splitters to augment ventilator capacity👇

Project link… /1
Splitters are a quick, simple way to 4X no of patients each ventilator supports. The designs are #opensource & they can be printed locally (remotely) by doctors & hospitals. Demo video

I along with @jboutelle @rashmi are supporting Sonal in his effort. /2
For those wanting to explore this further, pl go through this thread

If you want to get in touch with the team, DM me.

It's been a few years since I was in charge of tech at an educational institution, but let's say I was put in charge somewhere with *no* online provision.

What would I do?

Priority #1 - use stuff that people already know. Like email.…

You'll get more mileage out of staff using email effectively than just dropping them into a chat app and hoping for the best.
Priority #2 - use supported #opensource technology

If you're starting from scratch, it's important to avoid vendor lock-in, no matter how tempting and shiny venture capital-backed tools are with a free intro period.

A message to the HR community: 🧵

There's much (understandable) stress in the HR community around #coronavirus #covid19. Our employees are stressed. Our leaders are looking to us for guidance. We're looking to each other - and we're helping. Here are some things we can do:

We haven't experienced a global pandemic like this so there's no clear response playbook. We're (individually & collectively) building as we go. That why tools like the #OpenSource @googledocs on #Coronavirus comms are so important now.…

I realize not all of us are in a position to do share publicly, but the more we can open up our plans to help our peers gauge how others are responding the better position we'll all be to help guide our companies and employees through this.

Hola amigos, hoy no es sábado, sabadete, pero toca hilo de #privacidad y #eticadelosdatos. ¿Sabías que la Comunidad Valenciana es la ÚNICA REGIÓN DE EUROPA que protege la privacidad de sus estudiantes en los colegios públicos a través de herramientas y plataformas #OpenSource?
Pero, ¿en qué consiste esta protección a los estudiantes? : cada palabra que tu hijo escribe, cada video que mira, o música que escucha, cómo escribe con el teclado, donde se encuentra físicamente en cada momento… es captado por las herramientas de los gigantes tecnológicos.
¿Para qué? Para reunir toda esa información y confeccionar lo que se denominan perfiles. ¿Qué pueden extraer e inferir de todos esos datos que extraen de los estudiantes en las escuelas que usan Google o Microsoft?

So y'all ready for a thread on #OpenSource Design contributions to #OSS?

I've had a lot of conversations with #designers ready to contribute but struggling to find OSS tasks and OSS that are ready for #design contribution.

Here's my thoughts, Let's GO!

#OSS maintainers, post on when you think you want a designer to help. Doesn’t have to be exact, it can be ‘We think we have a problem with login page/how people use X part of our OSS tool’

The designers there can help you understand your needs.

#Designers! reach out to the #OSS projects you love. Search on @github and @gitlab search for things you like (e.g. Search: Refugee tech) look at @OpenCollect

When you find a project, reach out to them. Email, message and build a relationship.

Much to commend in #UK2070 work. Clearly a serious academic type regional planning orientated contribution to issues of regional inequality and what we need to do about it. Good stuff! However, whilst extensive, there are some serious omissions/lack of emphasis.
Few thoughts 1/6
💷Financialisation with wealth extraction? The great 'unleveller' of the UK economy. This is a hugely significant omission by #uk2070? Needed bravery here. It hasn't been.
🌳 #GreenNewDeal? Surely worthy of consideration as basis to industrial transformation/ rebalancing?
👨‍👩‍👦‍👦Local economies? Weak section. And no mention of #communitywealthbuilding(I declare an interest!). However, this is a key local economic approach adopted by dozens of areas and growing in anchor institutions (I.e #NHS)
👋Brexit. Barely mentioned.

Thread ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Una precisazione per chi ci segue e per chi fa parte della rete #centralinedalbasso.
Noi non siamo climatologi o meteorologi né esperti di inquinamento, e ci affidiamo alla scienza ufficiale.
Non siamo alternativi ad #Arpa e sappiamo che una centralina dal basso non è uguale ad una centralina Arpa .#Luftdaten non è un nostro progetto, ma noi ci occupiamo di farlo conoscere ed espandere, perché siamo convinti che la #scienzapartecipata
e la distribuzione capillare di sensori #meteo e #pm, ci forniranno nel tempo (lo stanno già facendo ma siamo solo all'inizio) dati aperti che saranno utili a tutta la collettività. Non abbiamo la pretesa di essere autorevoli né infallibili.

0/ Lots of founders have asked me to tweet storm my recent Open Source Paper into a quick 10 point hit list on what to look for when building an #opensource company. Here goes:
1/ Fulfill an operational pain point. This should be central to your company. Is this a nice to have for developers? Saving just a few hours of dev time? Probably not a pain point enough. When you get on the phone with your early users, do they say: "I couldn't survive w/o this?"
2/ Tech evangelizers from respected communities are critical in the early days. Developer behavior is the closest thing in software to consumer behavior. Word of mouth matters. If they like what you've built, they'll talk about it.

I’ve been recently asked why I still use .Net if I hate it so much (concluding based on some of my tweets).

So here’s the point - I LIKE .NET. I think it’s really good technology in many aspects and really great choice for many types of problems.

I really like some of the stuff MSFT is doing with .Net - F# (😜), editor tooling services as part of compiler design (still concept totally foreign to many languages, especially FP), good improvements of .Net Core, performance magic in ASP .NET and more...

No one is pointing gun at me when I spend countless hours building OSS stuff on .Net, writing blog posts, or giving talks (especially in the places traditionally not using .Net) and promoting it.

Since seeing my project used by a foreign military, I've been trying to imagine an #opensource / @OpenSourceOrg license that's congruent with Kantian Ethics

So far, I haven't succeeded.

Take a seat, this is a long thread...…
When I started my first open source project in 2003 (a few tools to automate #mysql servers) I thought #opensource was universalizable.

It's not.

The OSI definition grounds in an assumption that unrestricted use of software is ethically pure and therefore above reproach
Kant's famous Maxim, known as the categorical imperative, states that any maximum must be universally applicable for it be a valid ethical framework.

The trivial example is honesty vs lying.

J'ai pu [enfin] mettre à jour les données #osm de qui datent de dimanche dernier du coup — on parle ici des données cartographiques hors SNCF — enjoy 🙂

Mini thread sur la méthodo pour fabriquer son extraction #OSM vectorielle chez soi ⬇️
Le combo @Mapbox + @OpenMapTiles est déroutant de facilité et souplesse (rendu côté navigateur, facile de changer le style, très bien documenté, et tout est #opensource).
MAIS les données vectorielles distribuées par #openmaptiles sont soit vieilles, soit chères. Mais...
@OpenMapTiles ils sont sympas : ils vendent des fichiers tous faits pour pas s'embêter, mais si tu veux les fabriquer toi-même, ils expliquent et donnent leur méthode + outils pour le faire. Great job guys !

Tout est là :… il suffit de suivre la doc !

October @stratisplatform node map is surprising and possibly a bit 👻.

1) 2,586 nodes 🔥🔥 🔥
2) #Brazil 🇧🇷 is highest growth - 1025%!
3) #China 🇨🇳 say “Hi!” with one #Csharp node.
4) New countries - 🇭🇺 🇮🇷 🇱🇦 🇨🇳 🇹🇼
Germany 🇩🇪 continue to dominate Europe in this #DigitalTransformation. Hungary is new. While smaller countries like Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ireland, Malta, and Spain continues their explosive growth! Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost @EUBlockchain
Middle East has a slight uptick. Bahrain 🇧🇭, Turkey 🇹🇷, and Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 maintain their lead and continue their growth. Iran is new. I suspect we will hear some news from #Bahrain and #Turkey in 2020. Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost
