Free Our Data: the blog

A Guardian Technology campaign for free public access to data about the UK and its citizens

ESRC events and Open Knowledge day: podcasts/transcripts available

The Open Knowledge Foundation event was very interesting: there’ll be a couple of blog posts arising from it (which I’ll put up here in a moment).

Meanwhile, Steve Coast of OpenStreetMap has put up the podcast of the panel at which Ed Parsons, he and I (Charles Arthur) spoke.

The National Centre for e-Social Sciences (NCeSS) has a page which might, or might not have the webcast – it’s not clear whether it will be archiving the content. It was a very interesting debate, made more interesting by the fact that many had thought – wrongly, we emphasise – that the campaign wants to make personal data available. We don’t. The aim is to get impersonal data made available without restriction for the cost of reproduction.


an interesting writeup from an archaeologist’s point of view.
