The Power of Information Report continues to have its impact around Whitehall, following the hell frezzing release of OS Openspace (alpha) just before the deadline of December last year, the Office of Public Sector Informtion (OPSI) has announced plans to run a barcamp a week on Saturday (12th January).
The BarCampPOIR8 will have as it’s subject the creation of web-based channel to support requests for the publication of specific public information datasets. This was recommendation 8 of the report hence POIR8 !
It’s rather short notice, but great to see Government bodies reaching out to the information policy and developement community in this way.
For those not familiar with the tradtion, this article explains what a barcamp is 🙂
