media140 dataconomy - 21st October 2010
We have launched a new series of London events with our first one at the HUB, exploring the fast growing trend of open data and how it is impacting different industries. From government data about spending, parking tickets to local NHS hospital waiting lists, to the Wikileaks' Afghanistan war logs, all this data is now freely accessible and open for free re-use.
How can it be used, manipulated, visualised or even used to benefit profit making organisations? With viewpoints from technologists, designers and journalists we explore how you can make data work.
The team at Newspepper.com reported from the event producing the event report for media140.
