Next Tuesday, 25th Jan, Rufus Pollock is giving a seminar in Manchester (4pm-5),

Manchester. All welcome
to work on any aspect of open data or the Open Knowledge Foundation's
work (see http://www.okfn.org/projects/).

This will be followed by a Seminar from 4pm-5pm: Open Data: What, Why How!
Rufus Pollock - University of Cambridge, Centre for Intellectual
Property and Information Law
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. -

Followed by drinks in Sandbar from 5:30 (ish)

If you're interested in working with open data generally or any
specific OKFN projects such as WhereDoesMyMoneyGo,
CKAN, etc, you're very welcome to come along to any part of it. If
you're interested
in coming to the workshop, please rsvp for location to s.smith at manchester.ac.uk.
The seminar and pub are open to all.

Please pass on to those you think might be interested.
