Last week I had the pleasure of attending the O’Reilly Strata Conference in New York City, and sat in on a very important keynote from Drew Conway and Jake Porway about their project, Data Without Borders.
Data Without Borders is looking to match non-profits in need of data analysis with freelance and pro bono data scientists who can work to help them with data collection, analysis, visualization, or provide decision support.
eHive, online collection management system, grants access to its web-based organization system via the eHive API. Museums can integrate the API with third party applications, or developers can build mobile and custom apps that leverage eHive technology. eHive allows museums and curators to gather, share, and manage collections of all flavors and sizes directly through a web interface. API integration enables eHive users to gain traction through mobile, social, and existing networks.
