"The second reason for being being mad is a bit more substantial and has to do with this (long) blog post by Adam Greenfield in which he outlines his current reserach focus on (in his own words) ‘land use, mobility and governance, as they fold back against an [urban] environment and population whose capacities and affordances are increasingly conditioned by the presence of networked computational systems’. In this post he describes three sites of urban practice that he considers instructional. One of these places (if you are interested in the other ones read his full post, it is worth it) is the the Godsbanen/Institut for (x) complex, in Aarhus, Denmark"

"A good software engineer knows that there are times when careful design and forethought are required, and puts a lot of energy and attention into those situations when they come across them. The rest of the time, a good software engineer knows to just bang stuff together and make it happen and not worry about it too much, because for most stuff, "good enough" actually is. Knowing when to do a quick hack is just as important as knowing when not to, because the more time you spend engineering random crap, the fewer time you have for engineering the really important stuff."

"This list was generated using some pretty naive code that really only concerned itself with names and concordances that could be inferred with the simplest of rulesets. There is lots of work to be done here but we opted for doing the easy thing first in the service of our collections website so as not to get stuck in the quicksand of edge cases." I like this disclaimer very very much indeed.

nomenklatura is a reference data recon server. It allows users to manage a list of canonical entities (e.g. person or organisation names) and aliases that connect to one of the canonical entities. This helps to clean up messy data in which a single entity may be referred to by many names. The key elements in the service include the dataset, which is a segmented unit of reference data, a set of entities - i.e. the canonical forms - and a set of aliases which connect a non-standard form to a entity.
