Bookmarks for September 18th through to October 6th

These are my links for September 18th through to October 6th:

  • The Knowledge Hub « Policy and Performance – The IDeA is in the business of improvement by local government for local government. At the core of our offer is peer support. We use peers at every level of everything we do, not least our knowledge management approach – that is the stories and case studies, the guidance and toolkits that we publish on IDeA Knowledge.Our communities of practice platform was an attempt to move beyond the IDeA prepares knowledge (working with you) and then hosts it on a website – which you can then read, but which you can’t necessarily feed back on or let anyone else know how you used it. And it was a successful attempt – there are now over 35,000 members and 800+ practitioner communities.
  • Pipes: Rewire the web – Pipes is a powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web. Like Unix pipes, simple commands can be combined together to create output that meets your needs: * combine many feeds into one, then sort, filter and translate it. * geocode your favorite feeds and browse the items on an interactive map. * power widgets/badges on your web site. * grab the output of any Pipes as RSS, JSON, KML, and other formats
  • IBM – Mashup Center – Features and benefits – IBM Mashup Center is an easy-to-use business mashup platform, supporting line of business assembly of dynamic situational applications – with the management, security, and governance capabilities IT requires. IBM Mashup Center combines the intuitive user mashup capabilities from IBM Lotus Mashups and the information access and transformation capabilities of IBM InfoSphere MashupHub into one tightly integrated, comprehensive mashup offering.

  • Twitter Blog: Soon to Launch: Lists – A new Twitter feature we’re testing with a small subset of users. The idea is to allow people to curate lists of Twitter accounts. For example, you could create a list of the funniest Twitter accounts of all time, athletes, local businesses, friends, or any compilation that makes sense. Lists are public by default (but can be made private) and the lists you’ve created are linked from your profile. Other Twitter users can then subscribe to your lists. This means lists have the potential to be an important new discovery mechanism for great tweets and accounts.
