Open Knowledge Foundation

Sun, 21 Jan 2007

The Open Knowledge Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to addressing the utilisation of knowledge within a digital society and engaging in the wide and open availability of that knowledge. They are, not surprisingly, not in favour of restrictive practises in the availability of data/information. This clearly crosses paths with my work at the Journal of Maps and I broadly support such an initiative, particularly where it is able to raise the profile of the issues surrounding "open knowledge" and engage relevant stakeholders.

The OKF have organised Open Knowledge 1.0, the first all-day Open Knowledge event. The programme tackles data, media and government information and certainly looks interesting. If you have an interest in this area then it will be well worth a visit.
