Speaking on Digging into Open Data at Data Insights Meetup in Cambridge Today

I’ll be talking at Data Insights Meetup today on the topic of Digging into Open Data.




There has been growing interest, especially in government, in ‘open data’. This talk will explain what open data is, why it is important and go on to cover some of the Open Knowledge Foundation’s recent work in this area.

About the Open Knowledge Foundation

The Open Knowledge Foundation has been a pioneer in the field of open data since its inception in 2004. It works in a wide array of areas from sonnets to statistics, genes to geodata. Its open-source CKAN software powers http://data.gov.uk/, http://thedatahub.org/ and dozens of other open data hubs around the world. For more information about the Foundation see http://okfn.org/ and http://okfn.org/projects.

    Hi Rufus Just browsing through your ‘online home’ and was fascinated to read the ‘schooldays’ essays! Particularly the one on school as an institution, in particular, Oundle! So many important observations here on a variety of levels. I suspect not much has changed. We are presently in France in searing cold and searing blue skies life is good as the house is warm and we venture to the theatre tonight,an acrobatic piece on male stereotypes! A Bientot jenny
