Open Data On The Web : April 2013 by Kal Ahmed.
From the post:
I was privileged to be one of the attendees of the Open Data on the Web workshop organized by W3C and hosted by Google in London this week. I say privileged because the gathering brought together researchers, developers and entrepreneurs from all around the world together in a unique mix that I’m sure won’t be achieved again until Phil Archer at W3C organizes the next one.
In the following I have not used direct quotes from those named as I didn’t make many notes of direct quotations. I hope that I have not misrepresented anyone, but if I have, please let me know and I will fix the text. This is not a journalistic report, its more a reflection of my concerns through the prism of a lot of people way smarter than me saying a lot of interesting things.
Covers sustainability, make it simpler?, data as a service, discoverability, attribution & licensing.
Kal has an engaging writing style and you will gain a lot just from his summary.
The issues he reports are largely the same across the datasphere, whatever your technological preference.
