This is very exciting news.
The university has created a full time postion (initially 2 year fixed term) for data.southampton! This will involve taking the system towards maturity and “business as usual”. It’ll involve working closely with myself and Patrick.
I’m hoping to get someone enthusiastic about the technology and way it can improve how we all work, but with different skills to Patrick and I. My ideal candidate is the type of person who enjoys doing all the fiddling required to build a really good software package release. Part of the goal is to make open data not only practical for other organisations but actually easy.
I’m really chuffed that our university thinks its worth investing in Linked Data as infrastructure, not just as a research area.
