Free Our Data: the blog

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


A new No.10 petition: free PostZon

Mark Goodge added this as a comment to the data.gov.uk post, but it seems worth making more visible. So here it is:

“While the launch of data.gov.uk is a big step in the right direction, the government’s response to the petition inspired by the forced closure of ernestmarples.com has been pathetic. As a consequence, I’ve created a new petition which seeks to focus more tightly on the Postzon data (the data use by ernestmarples in their API). This can be found at http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/geopostcode/.”

That’s one that’s definitely worth getting behind. Head over there and …do whatever the verb is for petitioning someone. Is it petition?
