What, Why, How?

There has been growing interest in many circles, and especially in government, regarding ‘open data’. In this talk he’ll explain what open is, what’s its attraction is, especially for government information, and finally explain how governments and others can ‘go open’. Access to government data is essential to many of the webapps and digital services (and data journalism) we’d like to see, from planning a journey to work to knowing where your taxes get spent. As well as covering the basic what, why, how of open data this talk will look at examples of some of the most interesting work in this area and provide a vision for what developing open data ecosystem could look like.
