How do the Warriors compensate for their injured All-Stars?

first_imgOAKLAND – The joy spread across Stephen Curry’s face as he hoisted shots into the basket.During a post-practice shooting workout, Curry swished countless 3-pointers around the perimeter. He then played hackey-sack with NBA Hall-of-Famer and Warriors consultant Steve Nash before making more shots.Those signs made the Warriors feel encouraged about Curry’s progress since missing the past six games with a strained left groin. But it must have frustrated the Warriors, too. Curry will sit out …last_img read more

Data.gov to Face a Challenger From Sunlight Labs

first_imgData.gov, the US federal government’s new catalog of sets of public data for outside developers to mashup and analyze, now faces some friendly competition. The Sunlight Foundation, a non-partisan non-profit organization dedicated to government transparency, has announced that it will launch a National Data Catalog to go above and beyond what Data.gov offers.We’ve been critical of the sparse offering from Data.gov but Sunlight’s plan looks like it could surpass what even the most ambitious government program is likely capable of.Here’s how Clay Johnson, head of Sunlight Labs, described the need for this project:Because of politics and scale there’s only so much the government is going to be able to do. There are legal hurdles and boundaries the government can’t cross that we can. For instance: there’s no legislative or judicial branch data inside Data.gov and while Data.gov links off to state data catalogs, entries aren’t in the same place or format as the rest of the catalog. Community documentation and collaboration are virtual impossibilities because of the regulations that impact the way Government interacts with people on the web.We think we can add value on top of things like Data.gov and the municipal data catalogs by autonomously bringing them into one system, manually curating and adding other data sources and providing features that, well, Government just can’t do.Johnson says the site, which is being developed with publicly visible open source code, will allow users to contribute sets of data, documentation to go along with data and links to places around the web that are using any set of data cataloged. It sounds like a ProgrammableWeb type site for public data.In addition to government information, Sunlight will also be including derivative data sets, like information from the campaign contribution tracker OpenSecrets. That’s something it’s very hard to imagine a government website including.Can Sunlight build a one-stop-shopping destination for public data, and will people make use of that? Time will tell, but it sounds like a very important project. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#Data Services#news#NYT#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatricklast_img read more
