Archive of Datasets

July 16, 2012 by


In the announcement last week that we’re shutting down Kasabi, we said that we would make an archive of the datasets available. There is a list of download links now available. The spreadsheet lists each of the datasets, their license and a download link for the data. The spreadsheet contains nearly 200 datasets that were publicly available in Kasabi. […]

Working with Kasabi API Keys

February 20, 2012 by


You signed up for a Kasabi account and have started developing a client side application (e.g. a javascript and HTML based webapp), but you have just realised that for every API call you make, you are going to have to give your api key. You have also realised that you will need to make this […]

Building a Mobile App using Kasabi

January 11, 2012 by


In a departure from our normal working day, we decided to see just how easy it would be to build an iPhone app that could feed data into a Kasabi dataset using Kasabi’s APIs. We threw some ideas around and decided to build an app that could be used to record a series of sounds […]

First Year of Kasabi

Kasabi’s beginning to pop up in blog coverage, and I wanted to quickly highlight a couple of recent posts. ReadWriteWeb, which has always loved data-based technology, covered Kasabi in its recent post on data markets. The piece gives an interesting perspective on the rise of data being made available online, and Kasabi gets the kudos […]

Mis-matched parts

February 21, 2011 by


I’m a rubbish shopper. I don’t like browsing for hours, and I invariably find what I want, but in the wrong size, shape, or colour. This is most exasperating in shops with technical bits and pieces. Usually, this is because what I’m trying to do requires something kind of like a USB to HDMI adapter, but with […]

Internal User Testing

February 11, 2011 by


Yesterday, we took a nerve-wracking step and invited folks from within Talis to help us test Kasabi. We asked a range of people—developers, engineers, and even some humans—to take part. This was the first time most of them had seen any part of Kasabi, and the first time anyone outside the team has been invited […]
