This week is also the last chance to respond to the UK Government Consultation on Open Stanards. Large companies have reportedly been pushing their agenda in this consultation, but anybody is allowed to voice their support, objections or suggestions to the proposals.
I’ve published a couple of relevant blog posts on the webteam blog:
- Linked Open Data mission to HESA
- data.southampton: Enterprise Edition – this post goes into the technical detail and is about the underlying system, not the data itself.
There’s also been two recent blog posts from peer-projects I’d like to recommend:
- Open University: So, what’s in linked datasets for education
- University of Lincoln: The future of data.lincoln.ac.uk
