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.
BandPage creates a platform where musicians, fans and others in the music industry can interact easily. For musicians, it can be difficult to stay connected to fans who are scattered all over the web. BandPage aims to rectify this issue by providing musicians with a one-stop-shop solution; update once and publish everywhere. Bands simply create a BandPage profile and all their info is updated across various other online channels as well. The BandPage API allows third party developers to access this data and integrate it into other applications.
