John Sheridan Talks About the Drive to Get Government Data Online

John describes work at OPSI and elsewhere in the UK Government

John Sheridan’s role as Head of e-Services at the UK Government’s Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) places him at the heart of this country’s enthusiastic drive toward increasing visibility of Government data online.

As we discuss in this podcast, the programme is ambitious but eminently achievable, and builds upon a tradition that has actually been a lot more open than it may sometimes appear.

Production of this podcast was supported by Talis, and show notes are available on their Nodalities blog.

John describes work at OPSI and elsewhere in the UK Government, and also draws upon his role as co-Chair of the World Wide Web Consortium’s e-Government Interest Group to consider some of the broader issues.

He concludes by issuing an invitation to anyone interested in working with Government to ensure that data is made available to a timetable and in forms that really meet the needs of potential beneficiaries here and overseas.
