Free Our Data: the blog

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


And quote of the day goes to…

A simply marvellous response from Martin Daly, chief technology officer of CADCorp, commenting on the AGI’s response to the Prime Minister (read it here, because you’ll want to).

He remarked on Twitter:

Loving this AGI letter re OS … with pp-d signature. It takes some cojones to pp a letter to THE FREAKING PRIME MINISTER.

And you know what? He’s absolutely right. The second signature is pp’d. “Yeah, Prime Minister, I want you to read it, but you know what? I can’t actually be there to sign it. Can’t think how I could electronically put my signature on it either. So I got that person in the office who does stuff to sign it.”

Roll on, digital age. But mind you bring my quills too.
