Free Our Data: the blog

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

Information World Review joins Free Our Data campaign

We’re pleased to welcome our first official partner in the campaign: Information World Review, a VNU publication, has joined the campaign.

In a posting on the IWR blog, IWR’s editor Mark Chillingworth notes that

it would be great if Information World Review and its readers can be part of a campaign to make the information we already own more easily available.

IWR – motto “Information for competitive advantage” – is Europe’s leading newspaper for the information industry, covering both content and information management issues from the perspective of information professionals and managers responsible for intranets, extranets, portals and content management. It is circulated to information professionals, information managers and content managers working in corporations, consultancies, and public sector organisations in the UK.

As I note on the blog post, the more people and organisations we have on board, the better our chances of success. If you see more examples where government is charging or re-charging itself for data, let us know – add a comment here.
