Samantha Ehlinger

Anybody looking to access federal court records electronically has to slog through a difficult-to-use site that charges 10 cents per pageview, but a prominent nonprofit digital library says it wants to make that information available for free.

The Internet Archive told a House subcommittee this week that it wants to give the public easier access to the documents in the Public Access to Court Electronic Records service, known as PACER.

In a letter sent to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet before a hearing held Tuesday, the Internet Archive said it “would be delighted to archive and host–for free, forever, and without restriction on access to the public–all records contained in PACER.”

Radio Garden

radio.garden

Radio Garden is an extraordinary new website that allows visitors to listen to over 8,000 live radio stations from around the world. Created by Jonathan Puckey with financial support from the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision, Radio Garden utilizes a number of open sourced technologies and the contributions of radio stations from around the globe. As Jonathan Puckey explains in a recent interview with NPR, the project emerged when the Netherlands Institute of Sound and Vision approached Puckey about creating a museum exhibition for a recent, multi-university European research project called Transnational Radio Encounters. Puckey and his team decided to create this website instead. By clicking the above link, visitors will automatically be taken to the Live portion of this website and will be directed to the radio station closest to their current location. From here, visitors can explore other stations around the globe via an interactive map. When visitors select cities with multiple participating stations, a list will appear on the right side of the browser, allowing visitors to choose which station to listen to. By selecting the History tab or Jingles tab, visitors can explore historic radio broadcasts and station jingles from across time and space. Finally, the Stories tab features a number of moving interviews with individuals about the role of radio in their lives. [MMB]

Mosaic Threat Assessment Systems

MOSAIC is an error avoidance method,

a computer-assisted method for conducting comprehensive assessments – in the same way that diagnosis is a method used by a doctor. An effective medical diagnosis results when a doctor knows which questions to ask, knows which tests will produce the most accurate answers, and then knows how to draw relevant conclusions from all the answers combined together.

Similarly, assessing whether a situation has the combination of factors that are associated with escalated risk and danger requires that you know what questions to ask, and then know how to consider all your answers in a way that enhances insight. The MOSAIC method works by breaking a situation down to its elements, factor-by-factor, and then seeing what picture emerges when the pieces of the puzzle are put together.

MOSAIC helps the assessor weigh the present situation in light of expert opinion and research, and instantly compare the present situation to past cases where the outcomes are known.
