These are my links for February 28th through March 3rd:
- web20-21stcentury-tools – home – A great collection of Web2.0 tools, focused on educators, but a valuable resource list for anyone interested in Social Media

- Improving data visualisation for the public sector – Good data visualisation can help users explore and understand the patterns and trends in data, and also communicate that understanding to others to help them make robust decisions based on the data being presented. This site supports public sector researchers improve the way that they visualise data, by providing good practice examples and case studies, practical and step-by-step guides on how to visualise data, and links to more detailed resources.
- Making government more open and social | Enterprise Web 2.0 | ZDNet.com – Can social tools and community-based approaches truly help our government function better and operate more efficiently? Will open access to government data create important new opportunities for citizens and increase transparency?
These two questions are currently top-of-mind in many public sector policy discussions this year. The questions also herald new forces at work in transforming the government landscape in many countries around the world in 2010, particularly as we’ll see, the United states.
- E4 Longdistance Walk – If you know John Hayes (Services Director at IDeA) you may want to follow his new adventure: "Having worked non-stop for over thirty years I have now decided to do something completely different. I'm going to walk from Tarifa, the most southerly point in Spain, to Budapest. I'm following the route of the E4 European Long Distance Walk and I think I might be the first person to do it. "
