Databrary – Open Data Library for Developmental Science

Databrary – Open Data Library for Developmental Science
http://databrary.org/

Databrary is an open data library for developmental science. Share video, audio, and related metadata. Discover more, faster. Databrary is a  data library for scientists to share video and audio recordings, research data and analytical tools, and metadata with other investigators. Most developmental scientists rely on video recordings to  capture the complexity and richness of behavior. However, researchers rarely share video data, and this has impeded scientific progress. By
creating the cyber-infrastructure and community to enable open video sharing, the Databrary project aims to facilitate deeper, richer, and broader understanding of behavior. The Databrary project is dedicated to transforming the culture of developmental science by building a community of researchers committed to open video data sharing, training a new generation of developmental scientists and empowering them with an unprecedented set of tools for discovery, and raising the profile of behavioral science by bolstering interest in and support for scientific research among the general public.

Datavyu – Video Coding and Data Visualization Tool
http://datavyu.org/

Datavyu is a Java-based application that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. It requires no specialized hardware. Most labs can create Datavyu coding stations with computers already at hand. Datavyu builds on the OpenSHAPA coding tool. Datavyu accommodates your needs. You decide how you want to code your video, audio, physiology, motion, or eye tracking data. Power users can write scripts in the Ruby programming language and use the power of the R statistical programming environment to extend Datavyu’s functionality. Datavyu software and technical support is free, now and always. Datavyu is open-source. Anyone can improve Datavyu and share the new features with the other researchers.

SpiderOak – 100% Private Online Backup, Sync and Sharing

SpiderOak – 100% Private Online Backup, Sync and Sharing
https://spideroak.com/

First released in 2007, SpiderOak helped define the industry of online backup. Determined to dispel the myth that ‘data online can’t be secure,’ SpiderOak carved its niche as the top choice for those most concerned with privacy. The engineering goal was simple – devise a plan where users’ files, filenames, file types, folders, and/or any other personal information is never exposed to anyone for any reason (even under government subpoena). This describes  SpiderOak’s ‘zero-knowledge’ privacy environment. What does ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy mean? In technical terms it means that the server has ‘zero-knowledge’ of your data. In non-technical terms it means that your data is 100% private and  only readable to you. In a world where more and more of our lives are online, it behooves us to think about who has access to our data from critical business documents to personal photo albums. SpiderOak provides  the ability to utilize cloud technologies while retaining that precious  right we call privacy. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™.

QDAP – Qualitative Data Analysis Program
http://texifter.com/Solutions/QDAP

From biomedical, public health, and educational research, to studies in the behavioral, computational, and social sciences, effective qualitative data analysis plays a critical role. For this reason, they have created the Qualitative Data Analysis Program labs at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the University of Pittsburgh. Accurate and reliable coding using computers is central to the qualitative research process. For new and experienced content analysis researchers, learning advanced project management skills adds hours of struggle in trial-and-error sessions. Experienced QDAP coders and project managers deliver the large-scale, value-added annotated data you need in a timely and expert manner.

Selfstarter – Open Source Starting Point for Building Your Own Ad-Hoc Crowdfunding Site
http://selfstarter.us/

Selfstarter is an open source starting point for building your own ad-hoc crowdfunding site. It was put together by Lockitron after they were turned down from Kickstarter. Selftstarter is a starting point for you to build your own solution. It is set up to collect reservations using Amazon Payments, but you can choose you own provider too. They have kept Selfstarter really simple, but that also means that you should beef it up with your own authentication, administration and product management code. Most of what you need to get started is in the Readme. Selfstarter is based on Ruby on Rails, and they have tried to break up all of the different parts in a sensible fashion.
