1C: data.gov.uk - process and properties

A session at OpenTech 2010

Saturday 11th September, 2010

10:45am to 11:40am (GMT)

The data.gov.uk project grew out of the consultancy from Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Professor Nigel Shadbolt to Gordon Brown and his Digital Engagement Team. Richard Stirling has helped spear head the project that had its beta launch in January 2010. Working closely with the Central Office of Information and the Office of National Statistics, Richard has brought data.gov.uk from its concept idea through to a successfully launched public website, with hundreds of new open datasets being added weekly. Richard's talk will cover getting the data.gov.uk project off the ground, highs and lows, and the logistics surrounding such a high profile piece of work both from the eyes of the Cabinet, and the public. Richard will also discuss the future of data.gov.uk and learnings from the project. This session will be the one to talk about why (not) RDF/XML/linkedData/WebServices etc in.
