Tim: did you manage to find a license anywhere on how people can use the data?

> Hello all,
> I suspect many of you may have already seen this, but Keyna today launched
> it's own Open Data Portal at http://opendata.go.ke/ joining countries like
> UK and US, and institutions like the World Bank in running an open data
> programme.
> The site is running the US-based commercial 'Socrata.com' platform and has
> some interesting visualisations and mapping set-up by default. Personally
> I'm frustrated to see the 'data is for developers' framing all over it -
> with big '+Developers click here' buttons, and nothing inviting or
> encouraging other forms of use of data, but if a wider eco-system of data
> use can develop, aware that using data requires not just the data, but
> capacity building too - then this could be a really interesting and positive
> development.
> Lots of discussion and other analysis on twitter #opendatake and the
> blogosphere.
