As background: I invited him to speak at this year's OKCon in the hope
that he'd have some thoughtful discussions with various people - so
that they'd take on board his "not a panacea" comments (obvious to me,
but nevertheless useful), but also so that he'd get a richer
impression of more of the open data community, and how they aren't the
techno-determinist, naive, sitting duck, cardboard cutout he portrays
them to be. Apparently latter didn't work - and he's only reinforced
his views. ;-)
