Andrew Stott speaking at the Managing Public Sector Information conference – 1st March 2010.

Spoke about background to Power of Information and Making Public Data Public and Public Data principles – Putting the Frontline First.

Public data will be available and easy to find through a single easy to use online access point http://data.gov.uk – launched 21st January 2010. 

Note by methis provides an access point and some metadata, but is NOT a data repository of open or linked data, as many people seem to think. Big headache for me in continually explaining this to people following progress of the Knowledge Hub.

New licence terms for use of government open data are being developed by OPSI in consultation with Creative Commons. More details on the Perspectives blog.

No time for questions – Andrew had to dash off – only time for two questions from the delegates, so couldn't verify whether Andrew was aware of the Knowledge Hub project, which will be focused on open and linked Local Government data.

Meeting tomorrow (2nd March) with Prof Nigel Shadbolt who chairs the Local Data Panel to make sure Khub is joined up with Gov open/linked data initiatives.

Stephen Dale

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
