Open government data

A piece in today's Guardian, UK set to follow successful US data method, took me to a request for feedback by Richard Stirling on the Cabinet Office blog on the issues around creating the UK equivalent of the US data.gov service.

The blog entry is a few days old so apologies if you've already seen it, but one advantage of coming late to the discussion is that there is an interesting thread of comments on the post, in particular around the value/complexity of RDF vs. other data encoding formats.

Worth a look, and worth taking the time to comment if you can. I think this is a useful and interesting development and something to be encouraged.
