Speaking at CCSR in Manchester about Open Data

JANUARY 24, 2011

This Tuesday (25th Jan) I’ll be giving a seminar at Manchester University’s Centre for Census and Survey Research on Open Data.

The seminar is 4-5pm and there’ll be an open-data workshop/discussion from 12-4. If you’re interested in working with open data generally or any Open Knowledge Foundation projects specifically, for example [Where Does My Money Go], CKAN, etc, you’re very welcome to come along to any part of it.

Title: Open Data: What, Why How!

There has been growing interest in many circles, and especially in government regarding ‘open data’. In this talk I explain what open is, what’s its attraction is, especially for public sector information, from an economic and policy standpoint, and finally explain how governments and others can adopt this new approach.
