Participation and open data

    Overview of the subject – with links and accompanying presentation. All good stuff

    • Presentation at the Amsterdam Social Strategy Talk, talking about the issue of public participation and open data in relation to government innovation.There were plenty of smart people there, including practitioners from the government of the Netherlands and key players behind the Dutch Digital Pioneers initiative that funds social innovation.A very simple introduction to why this topic matters, plus a consideration of some recent critiques of transparency initiatives, decorated by a lovely data visualisation of world population growth from the G-Econ project.

      The subject is certainly in the air!
