Stanford’s Wrangler – A promising data-wrangling tool, with a lot of the interactive workflow that I think is crucial.

Open Knowledge Conference – They’ve gathered an astonishing selection of speakers. I’m really hoping I can make it out to Berlin to join them.

The Privacy Challenge in Online Prize Contests – It’s good to see my friend Arvind getting his voice heard in the debate around privacy.

The Profile Engine – A site that indexes Facebook profiles and pages, with their permission.

Acunu – I met up with this team in London, and they’re doing some amazing work at the kernel level to speed up distributed key/value stores, thanks to some innovative data structures.
