Cities, CKAN and Open Data
A quick note about the Open Data Cities Conference in Brighton a couple of weeks ago. I attended with my colleagues Ira, who’s CKAN’s Product Manager, and Laura James, who was one of the many excellent speakers. My write-up of the day is over on the Open Knowledge Foundation blog – it was an interesting day so take a look. The distilled essence is that there is a lot of interest in Open Data at the city level at the moment.
By good timing, CKAN’s entry to the Living Labs award was a proposal for an Open Data package for cities with CKAN at its heart, and is one of the shortlisted entries – final announcements are due later this week!
