JA-SIG Conference: Matt Asay Keynote

> “Connected world, Connected Software”, “Open source produces better software” (81% of respondents via Gartner) Matt’s perspective on focusing innovation on the “last mile” plays well with my thoughts on focusing on delivering institutional value. It’s interesting in that he combines that perspective with the pitch that open-source empowers you to build software to suit ...

JA-SIG Conference: Future of Identity Management in HigherEd

Jens’s talk is focusing on Identity Management where he’s focusing on life-cycle of identity data. Looks like the talk is going to focus on moving towards user-centered identity.”Access to the right resources, to the right users, at the right time” — focused on providing, not preventing access (e.g. from a security perspective). Authentication vs. Authorization ...

JA-SIG Conference: Unconference Planning

Thinking about things to do for the new JA-SIG. Some talk on various topics related to un-conferences, and other bits. There was actually a lot of interesting discussion about regional conferences, video meetings, un-conferences, events focused on collaborating on whitepages, etc. I’ll updated with an audio transcript… uhhh… when I get a chance…

JA-SIG Conference: Building Portable Portlets

Chuck is talking a bit more about his experience with portlets, and the implications for uPortal, Sakai, etc. Sakai portlet notes: * Preferences – site.upd to change * Edit Mode – site.upd again * `isUserInRole()` mapped to Sakai permissions site.upd, content.read, etc. The `isUserInRole()` mapping seems a little counter-intuitive — seems like really portlet.xml should ...

JA-SIG Conference: Phil Windley Digital Identity Keynote

Listening to Phil’s keynote. Will be trying to post video and audio at some point — in the meantime, there’s a good thread about reputation and privacy. *Update:* Posted very rough audio recording of the keynote, also available as part of the podcast.

In Denver @ JA-SIG

Made it into JA-SIG: ran into Susan on the flight from Newark, which was kind of surreal. The irony was that immediately before seeing her at the gate, I was thinking to myself how strange it is that I’ve never run into anyone else I knew while travelling out to one of these conferences. Arriving ...

An Agile Update for Mansueto Digital

An Agile Update for Mansueto Digital: Here’s an update: we’ve been running one of the most complex projects ever undertaken in business journalism, called the Inc. 5,000, using a variation of agile known as a scrum. Interesting to see software development processes being applied out more of a pure business environment. This kind of experimentation ...

Sakai Conference: Multi-Institution VRE

Using Sakai in multiple institutional research settings – AERS Case Study: Adult Literacy – used resources for file storage and as a documentation store, and diary entries stored as discussion entries. Teams liked the ability to contribute entries/discussions asynchronously, and despite being in many separate locations. Site Stats showed that most visits were content reads ...

Chris-ism

“The Moon would not be big if people took it apart…”

Sakai Conference: Moving from a Commercial Env. to Sakai

Jeshua Pacifici talked a bit about his experiences migrating from Blackboard to Sakai. Very broad detail focused, less information on the technical and detail sides of migrations (e.g. how to get Courses/Projects out of Blackboard). High level overview of some benefits, caveats, and others.
