APDU 2012 Conference Explores the Future of Federal Survey Data
by Peggy Garvin
While the tech community has been buzzing about public data, open data, and Big Data for the past several years, the Association of Public Data Users (APDU), founded more than 40 years ago, has had a relatively low profile in discussions happening outside of its own community of statisticians and demographers. Connections made at APDU's 2012 conference, held at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 12-13, could begin to change that. Speakers included representatives from the federal government (including the White House and leadership from the federal open data portal Data.gov), open data advocacy groups, and private sector data analysts and suppliers. Librarians, and especially data librarians, joined the statisticians in attendance.

Apple-Samsung Case Highlights America’s Troubled Patent System
by Paula J. Hane
It's clear that Apple scored a major victory over Samsung in its recent and highly publicized patent dispute. A jury found that a number of Samsung's mobile devices infringed on Apple's patented designs and awarded damages of $1.05 billion to Apple. The jury also found that Apple had not violated any of the five patents Samsung asserted in the case. Apple then requested a ban on the sale of eight models of Samsung smartphones. Both companies are considering their next steps, while the media and blogosphere continue to buzz with reactions.
