I was just browsing this category looking for some kind of UK/England/London local thread that I could connect with and say hi to fellow UK open data fans… and nothing! I was pretty taken aback! Come on, UK folk, where are you all? Is there anyone else in the UK here who’d like to connect and chat about open data?
Well, I’ll start by introducing myself: I’m Bex, I’m from Essex, England but currently live in London, and I got into open data by volunteering at OpenCorporates #FlashHacks gatherings, which are focused on liberating, transcribing and mapping corporate data. I loved collaborating to find data and the feeling of working together to make the world a more open place, so I kept coming It’s been ten months now and I haven’t got bored! Most recently we’ve been working on a project to transcribe and map Donald Trump’s entire corporate network… Watch this space ;3
How about everyone else? Who are you, where are you at, and what got you interested in open data?
