Freeing Data with Free Software
I’m going to be giving a talk tomorrow at the Manchester Free Software Group meetup at the Madlab tomorrow night (Tues, 18th Oct at 7pm).
I’ll be exploring the benefits and pitfalls of using free software to
build Swirrl‘s Linked Data platform for publishing open data, PublishMyData. I’d also like to discuss with the group its opinions on licensing models for releasing
part of our platform as a free software community edition.
Michael Dorrington, one of the group’s organisers, will also be talking about UK Copyright, and then we’ll be heading to Common across the road for drinks.
If you’re free tomorrow evening, please come and say hello.
UPDATE: the slides are available on github here as a ‘showoff’ presentation.
We'd love it if you shared this article.
