Is anyone interested in surveying the open data landscape of Norway for the
World Wide Web Foundation? Alternatively, would anyone be interested in
doing this in a crowd-sourced manned?
The story is that the World Wide Web Foundation has a project called The
Web Index, which survey's net enables information access and agency around
the world. The survey is really quite comprehensive and quite interesting.
It basically gets read by governments around the world. Last year the
report was launched by Tim Berners-Lee and Jimmy Walkes.
Last year I surveyed Norway - yeps, you can save the jokes about someone
from Denmark surveying Norway… ;) - and it was a lot of fun.
I've now been offered to do the same work again this year. Alas, it really
looks like I have some other open data commitments and I won't have the
time to do all the work.
So there are two alternatives:
1. - Someone else does it - please let me know!
2. - We try to do it in a crowd-sourced manner. I can coordinate - we put
together some shared document with the things needing researching, and
hopefully there'll be people who know the answers - typically availability
of particular data resources - and can fill it in without greater
For the effort, there's about $750... and it's about 5-7 days' work.
(Yeps, not a lot of money for that work, so i hope you very much enjoy
doing this and/or the community can do it and use the money for something
What do you think?
Please make yourselves heard!
