Hi all,

OKFN Labs have just launched a really cool new project highlighting bad
examples of data publishing as a way of learning from their mistakes.

The details of how to take part are here: http://okfnlabs.org/bad-data/add/
It's GitHub based and option 2 is very easy if you're not sure about option

I have nominated poor examples from
Nature: https://github.com/okfn/bad-data/issues/4
and Science: https://github.com/okfn/bad-data/issues/5

to kick it off.

If you happen to know of any other really bad examples of published,
accessible supplementary data do upload them! It would be good to see a
diversity of publishers represented.
