How Open Data Helped Save My Life

Information Revelation

Open data helped save my life… but how?

First, I’d like to turn your attention to a wonderful and informative TED video from 2010 called The year open data went worldwidepresented by Tim Berners-Lee. I embedded the video here:

Berners-Lee talks about the wonders of open data when it is accessible to all. It creates a new level of information transparency that allows users to use or create information in different ways. What I really like about this was the idea of community generated data, which was exemplified through the wiki-map program – OPEN STREET MAP. Information gathering programs like Open Street Map work towards using information as a way to help other people in real time.

La Pepita – Gracia’s hidden treasures – ES

En una esquina de Gracia se encuentra este pequeño restaurante, siempre abarrotado. A cualquier hora hay gente esperando para sentarse en la mesa o comiendo simplemente en la barra. Ese es su gran fallo. Pero ya se sabe, la gente no es tonta, y aquí nos ofrecen unas tapas buenísimas y de alta calidad. También nos ofrece la posibilidad de tomarnos un tan de moda gintonic con la comida.

Sus especialidades son los pepitos, de ahí el nombre, aunque no hay gran variedad en la carta como cabría esperar.

ImageEl precio de las tapas es normalito tirando a caro, pero te lo sirven con calidad. Para hacer os una idea nosotros nos pedimos: bravas, steak tartar, dos pepitos, agua y dos copas de vino y la cuenta subió a 50€.

En definitiva un sitio recomendable, pero hay que ir pronto para coger sitió!

High end tapas in Bar Mut – EN

Bar Mut is situated at a very central part of the city of Barcelona. If you are lucky enough to get a place on the terrace during a hot summer night the food will certainly not disappoint you.
We have to say that the prices are not for every budget however the taste of the food certainly justifies it..
We reccommend the Pulpo a la Gallega (Octopus Galician style with potatoes),  the Mussels and the huevos estrellados (eggs with bacon and potatoes)

The olives came by default when we ordered our first beer!
official site of the place!
