Fearful about personal data, a personal example


I was recently at a workshop on making better use of (personal) data for the benefit of specific communities. The discussion, perhaps inevitably, ended up focusing on many of the attendees concerns around how data about them was being used. The group was asked to share what made them afraid or fearful about how personal data […](image)

Some tips for open data ecosystem mapping


At Open Data Camp last month I pitched to run a session on mapping open data ecosystems. Happily quite a few people were interested in the topic, so we got together to try out the process and discuss the ideas. We ended up running the session according to my outline and a handout I’d prepared to […](image)

The British Hypertextual Society (1905-2017)


With their globe-spanning satellite network nearing completion, Peter Linkage reports on some of the key milestones in the history of the British Hypertextual Society. The British Hypertextual Society was founded in 1905 with a parliamentary grant from the Royal Society of London. At the time there was growing international interest in finding better ways to manage […](image)

Designing CSV files


A couple of the projects I’m involved with at the moment are at a stage where there’s some thinking going on around how to best provide CSV files for users. This has left me thinking about what options we actually have when it comes to designing a CSV file format. CSV is a very useful, but pretty mundane […](image)

Open Data Camp Pitch: Mapping data ecosystems


I’m going to Open Data Camp #4 this weekend. I’m really looking forward to catching up with people and seeing what sessions will be running. I’ve been toying with a few session proposals of my own and thought I’d share an outline for this one to gauge interest and get some feedback. I’m calling the session: […](image)

A river of research, not news


I already hate the phrase “fake news”. We have better words to describe lies, disinformation, propaganda and slander, so lets just use those. While the phrase “fake news” might originally have been used to refer to hoaxes and disinformation, it’s rapidly becoming a meaningless term used to refer to anything you don’t disagree with. Trump’s recent […](image)

Donate to the commons this holiday season


Holiday season is nearly upon us. Donating to a charity is an alternative form of gift giving that shows you care, whilst directing your money towards helping those that need it. There are a lot of great and deserving causes you can support, and I’m certainly not going to tell you where you should donate your money. But I’ve […](image)

The practice of open data


Open data is data that anyone can access, use and share. Open data is the result of several processes. The most obvious one is the release process that results in data being made available for reuse and sharing. But there are other processes that may take place before that open data is made available: collecting […](image)

Discogs: a business based on public domain data


When I’m discussing business models around open data I regularly refer to a few different examples. Not all of these have well developed case studies, so I thought I’d start trying to capture them here. In this first write-up I’m going to look at Discogs. In an attempt to explore a few different aspects of the service […](image)
