Continued Visibility for the Award-winning Web Portal
Laszlo Pinter, the individual who hired us as the technical contractor for the Peg community portal (www.mypeg.ca), recently gave a talk on the project at a TEDx conference in Winnipeg. Peg is the well-being indicator system for the community of Winnipeg. Laszlo’s talk is a 15-minute, high-level overview of the project and its rationale and role:
Peg helps identify and track indicators that relate to the economic, environmental, cultural and social well-being of the people of Winnipeg. There are scores of connected datasets underneath Peg that relate all information from stories to videos and indicator data to one another using semantic technologies. I first wrote about Peg when it was released at the end of 2013.
In 2014, Peg won the international Community Indicators Consortium Impact Award. The Peg Web site is a joint project of the United Way of Winnipeg (UWW) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). Our company, Structured Dynamics, was the lead developer for the project, which is also based on SD’s Open Semantic Framework (OSF) platform.
Congratulations to the Peg team for the well-deserved visibility!
