Excerpt: The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday proposed auctioning off the rights to use newly available airwaves to provide better in-flight Wi-Fi connections, as the government agency seeks to improve the speed and lower the cost of Internet service on commercial flights. The commission’s proposal is the first step toward a goal that it is likely to take a couple of years, at least, to reach: providing in-flight Internet service that can match or exceed the capabilities that most Americans have at home or can find in coffee shops.... read the full post.

Excerpt: When making an app, following your platform’s design guidelines is a tried-and-true way to increase metrics like user retention and customer satisfaction. It makes it easier for your users to learn how to use the application to the fullest extent, as quickly and intuitively as possible. In order to make designing for your target platforms easier, we made a cheat sheet for both iOS and Android Human Interface Guidelines (HIGs). It gives a high level summary of the User Interface, how to support multiple screen sizes, icon sizes, and touch gestures so that you don’t have to dig through the books to find them every time you need them. It also allows you to see the subtle differences between the platforms.... read the full post.

Excerpt: On May 9, 2013 the White House released an executive order with the title Making Open & Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information. My favorite line in the entire document is: “Government information shall be managed as an asset throughout its life cycle to promote interoperability and openness, and, wherever possible and legally permissible, to ensure that data are released to the public in ways that make the data easy to find, accessible, and usable” (emphasis mine). No Dumping The usual approach to this type of work is to simply publish raw data in a directory or repository and then create some fencing around the data that helps track usage and distribution.... read the full post.
