Great free lectures online from the School of Information at Berkeley. The lectures are from 2007 to the present and include (among many others):

The School of Information "is a graduate education and research community that crosses the boundaries of law, economics, sociology, business, library science, engineering, design, publishing, linguistics, computer science, and information science."

Carl Malamud is a powerful force for transparency and open-ness in America. The effects of his (and his colleagues') efforts will resonate for decades to come. I truly believe that we can't appreciate fully just yet the impact of the access to the public data that he works so hard to provide.

If other citizens of other nations can take anything away from Malamud and begin to force their own governments towards more transparency, it will mean a better future for many.

I think this is the first time "internets" has been used as a legitimate word.

I'm taking a class currently that specifically talked about Jenkins on the second day of class, and at greath length. We also discussed "meta-information" just yesterday and it made me think of MeFi :) Thanks for this, I will have to pass it along to my professor.
