@todrobbins
could someone catch me up on where https://schoolofdata.org went?
Tod Robbins
@todrobbins
sad to see it’s not online any longer

@sandervdwaal
School of Data is still very much alive @todrobbins! The site is online as normal for me, though with some DDoS protection from Cloudflare.. Let me know if you can still not access it.
Tod Robbins
@todrobbins
Oh weird. It’s up for me now
Tod Robbins
@todrobbins
The DDoS notice on every click is really unfortunate. Is that really the best option?
Brook Elgie
@brew
Hi @todrobbins. Sadly, it's currently necessary.
Tod Robbins
@todrobbins
@brew understood. I mean, totally worth it if the alternative is bot shut down. Thank you!

@nichtich
@brew @rufuspollock any update on the timemapper update? The new version is not deployed yet.
Brook Elgie
@brew
@nichtich Apologies for the delay. Those changes have now been deployed. Thanks for the PR!

Hey guys, I am working on a personal projeto for sharing Open Access papers. I am created a simple dashboard with Django where a user can view the paper metadata and download the paper itself. I currently have around 10M papers stored in Backblaze B3. I wonder if this is a type of project that may fit in OKFN, since I need some help organising the metadata, perhaps do some text analysis for categorization and so on.
Rufus Pollock
@rufuspollock
@benmezger great to hear from you - definitely something of interest. Let us know more about what you are looking for?

:tada: We’ve just released a new tool for Power BI today. Thought it would be good to share this news on here so you’d be among the first to know :smile:

Data Package Connector (datapackage-connector) is a Power BI Custom Connector for loading tables directly from Tabular Data Packages (Frictionless Data).

Learn more about it at https://github.com/nimblelearn/datapackage-connector

Hello! I'm dipping my toes into TimeMapper, hoping to introduce some faculty at my university to it. Am I seeing correctly that there's no stand-alone account signup option, only through Twitter?
vzafrin
@vzafrin
If that's correct, I'd love to know the rationale for this — mostly so that I can explain it to workshop participants who will then need to make decisions re whether to use it in their classrooms.

I can’t remember if that is only option. I think initially because we needed a nice user name in the url … it would not be hard to change ...

vzafrin
@vzafrin
@rufuspollock ...Well, you'd have to create a user account system that's unique to TimeMapper. Is that on the development roadmap?
Or rather, first: is there someone else who can confirm that currently the only way to create a TM account is through Twitter?
Rufus Pollock
@rufuspollock
@vzafrin we could do login via other services e.g. google or facebook. We’re not likely to implement user/password login in time mapper.
vzafrin
@vzafrin
@rufuspollock Thank you! This helps.

Hi, folks. Any idea why none of the javascript on dataportals.org are loading? okfn/dataportals.org#200

@dietbald
Does anyone know if the open product data project is still active or if someone could give me more information about it. I mean this one : https://product.okfn.org
Augusto Herrmann
@augusto-herrmann
If it is indeed active, I think perhaps the project could collaborate in some way with Open Food Facts. https://world.openfoodfacts.org/ What do you think?

hi folks, I'm looking at the BibJSON project page (http://okfnlabs.org/bibjson/#feedback). It mentions that a number of translators/parsers have been implemented already and are available in the organization's repo. Could someone please point me to that repo if possible? I'm unable to find it.
Tom Morris
@tfmorris
Probably these: https://github.com/okfn/bibserver/tree/master/parserscrapers_plugins but that repo was abandoned almost a decade ago
Davis Marques
@elmarquez
@tfmorris thanks for the pointer
is there still any interest in promoting and using BibJSON or has this standard fallen by the way side?
Tom Morris
@tfmorris
I haven't seen any recent interest, but you should probably ask someone from OKFN for their official position.
Rufus Pollock
@rufuspollock
@elmarquez i still very much like bibjson and have seen use in the wild. Also it was pretty mature so did not need much more work. I also think the cottagelabs folks are still using it.

@amercader are you around today per chance? I want to try and fix some stuff on dataportals.org and may need your help deploying!
Adrià Mercader
@amercader
@rufuspollock I'm on and off but can do things at some point
datacatalogs.org is on heroku right?
Rufus Pollock
@rufuspollock
yes - can you check if i have access to push to it?
or have admin access so i can add others @amercader
Adrià Mercader
@amercader
you should have a transfer request on your inbox @rufuspollock

Good morning folks! I haven't been in the OKFN hangouts for a long time, are they still happening? It would be great to catch up with you, and one is scheduled tonight.

@melffagundes it's fixed ... (if you mean the frictionless data field guide)
