Book Hack Taking unwanted items and reusing them in a way that benefits the community. We started taking unwated books and asking members of the public to take a free book draw/hack it and then give it away to a stranger. Could a tech version be made? http://www.MUSTart.org This is a low tech hack but needs you to make it into something better. What else can be recycled for good?
Coffee Hack http://www.openspacecafe.ning.com What else can be done with coffee and how we consume it? How about creating spaces where you buy coffee and the profits fund social enterprise hacking activities? or a Coffeeometer. We have a poolside London cafe location opening this summer and have been given unlimited free internet. What do you think we can do with this hi/low/no tech wise? This has started as a low tech hack but needs you to make it into something better?
Hack Charity www.Freetraid.org Is there a better way to get donations/volunteers to work on charitable stuff? Would like to work with others on a way to reward donations by giving donors more than they gave in free 'things'. If donoros are rewarded they will repeat the process increasing donations multiple times. This is a low tech thing but could help charity somehow?

The proceedings of the European Parliament are available online, but only in the original language of the speaker. No human being can follow a debate. We're using machine translation to make European democracy comprehensible.
Created a plug-in to the YUI Rich Text Editor component that allows it to handle right-to-left text like Arabic. What it does: - Gives a right-to-left direction to the RTE interface - Adds UI to set the direction of any paragraph to right-to-left or back to left-to-right. - Mirrors the user interface as the direction of the paragraph changes. - Does some clever walking of the DOM to figure out what a paragraph is. E.g. if it is made with div,p,br or ul. - Its just a plug in and does not…

It's a simple game that explores the "lost in translation" effect of search engines and semantic meaning as understood by people. The player is presented with a picture which he must describe in 42 characters. This description is then used to search for more pictures (Flickr, if empty Zemanta). User then picks one out of the line-up and can challenge friends with it.
OpenFreecycle is an attempt to make community sharing of free, unwanted items much more easy and widely accessible. Like eBay, for free. However, the Freecycle network operates as a collection of closed, private Yahoo Groups mailing lists. We want to build an open system: searchable, with feeds, and available to mashup with Greasemonkey in shopping sites, eBay, etc. "Don't buy this item, you can get it for free in your local community". http://dharmafly.com/openfreecycle
use Yahoo BOSS to find Myspace music artists, link to the dbtune/myspace resource that is the best match and get the the myspace audio w/o having to look at ugly myspace pages. find BBC programmes from location, depending on artists featured on that programme related to that location, e.g. http://dbtune.org/openhacklondon/Bristol Uses DBpedia, BBC Music and BBC Programmes

Our little bot is linked to the Internet, and can be controlled from mobile devices. Since it is on line, it will evolve soon, we hope it will bring good things to the world, and not total machine domination over mankind. Big thanks to our Mobile Steel friends Henry Senior & Daniel Sikar for helping us.
This is a hardware and server software solution to improve security when logging in to web sites from a shared terminal. It allows a user to log using a public computer without reviling credentials that can be used to log them in a second time. This will prevent an account being compromised if passwords are captured by concealed cameras or key logging software. The hardware part of the solution is based around the Arduino microprocessor board. The hardware produces a sequence of characters…

Implement a bayesian filter upon incoming news feeds, to provide more selective and relevant news.
When we're all using APIs to build mashups, we often forget that these APIs can go down, and it can really wreak havoc on your application. This is an App Engine app that reliably fails in a very predicatable and configurable way, to enable you to test your application's resilience to misbehaving APIs.
A greasemonkey script that looks for XFN rel="me" links on a page and then using a combination of YQL and the Google Social Graph API finds all related profile pages. You can then quickly flick through the user's profiles and follow them or add them as a friend on many social networks without ever having to leave the page you were originally on.

An open table definition which extends the flickr API to add celestial coordinates, RA and Dec, to flickr photos. Values are parsed from flickr machine tags and returned as a new table, flickr.photos.astro, with columns for photo id, title, url and coordinates. This should allow location-based searching for astro photography.
A simple way of finding someone to share your ride home.
