SecretInk – Create a Message That Automatically Self-Destructs After Reading
https://secretink.co/

SecretInk is a platform for sending secure messages that self-destruct immediately after being read. You can send passwords, account information or just plain fun messages and rest assured that no 3rd parties will read them. SecretInk sends all messages over HTTPS so your message text never touches the network unencrypted. Since they use end-to-end encryption, your message will never be readable by your work, ISP or third party mail hosts. Once a message is opened it is permanently deleted from their database. They never retain a copy and your message will be gone forever. They really believe in the power of secret messages, so they have built SecretInk to send SMS and e-mails for free! You can send messages to any phone number in their supported countries for free and it will be just as secure as every other SecretInk message. No one but the recipient will ever be able to read it. SecretInk is a new product made by PowerInbox. PowerInbox sees the next generation of email as collaborative, real-time, and interactive. The PowerInbox team is committed to bringing the app experience to email. PowerInbox’s interactive email plug-in allows users to perform real-time interactions inside emails from sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

World Wide Web Foundation

December 23, 2013

World Wide Web Foundation
http://www.webfoundation.org/

The World Wide Web Foundation was established in 2009 by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee to tackle the fundamental obstacles to realizing his vision of an open Web available, usable, and valuable for everyone. The Web is the most powerful tool for communication in the history of humanity, creating the potential for all people to participate in building a more peaceful and equitable world. However, only a small minority of people – mainly urban, male, and affluent – are part of the Web’s global conversation. Despite the recent surge in mobile internet access, nearly two-thirds of the world’s people (mostly in the developing world) are still not connected at all. And once connected, what people are able to do on and with the Web is increasingly threatened by government controls, as well as by certain commercial practices. They seek to establish the open Web as a global public good and a basic right, ensuring that everyone can access and use it freely. The foundation is unendowed and relies on charitable donations and partnerships to carry out its work. A registered charity in Switzerland and the USA, we have offices in Washington DC, Geneva, and Cape Town. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Open Data Barometer
http://www.opendataresearch.org/project/2013/odb

The Open Data Barometer takes a multidimensional look at the spread of Open Government Data (OGD) policy and practice across the world. Combining peer-reviewed expert survey data and secondary data sources, the Barometer explores countries readiness to secure benefits from open data, the publication of key datasets, and evidence of emerging impacts from OGD.The Open Data Barometer was conceived of as a companion study to the 2013 Web Index. The Web Index is a multidimensional measure of the Web’s use, utility and impact. The Barometer focuses in on the context, availability and emerging impacts of Open Government Data (OGD)The Barometer is designed to provide a clear and comparable analysis of the macro-level context for open data, the availability of open data, and emerging impacts of open data, across the world. It will support advocates, researchers and policy makers to better understand the development of open data globally, and will contribute to a growing evidence base on open government data.The Barometer is supported by the common assessment methods component of the Web Foundation’s ‘Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Developing Countries’ (ODDC) project, and by the Open Data Institute, as well as by the Web Index team at the World Wide Web Foundation. The 2013 Open Data Barometer is focused on piloting methods for assessing open data supply, building towards further iterations of the methodology and survey in 2014 and beyond.
