If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rufus Pollock.

Are you interested in the social, legal and technological issues related to Open Knowledge? Ever wondered about how things like “Open Access” and “Open Source” could be relevant to you. If so come along to the “Cambridge Open Knowledge Meetup” to hear about recent developments, discuss the legal and licensing issues, and debate the practicalities of open approaches to knowledge “production”.

The focus at these events is on open discussion though we do start out with some (brief) presentations. At this first event we’ll be hearing from:

  • Rufus Pollock, Emmanuel College and the Open Knowledge Foundation – on discovering and installing open knowledge packages using CKAN .
  • Francis Irving of PublicWhip.org and mySociety – on freeing Government data, and travel-time maps.
  • Jim Downing of the Unilever Cambridge Centre for Molecular Informatics – on Open Source and Open Access in Chemistry.

Generally, the programme is quite flexible so if you’d like to give a brief talk or update on something you’ve been working on or thinking about please just write to us and we can try and slot you in.

This talk is part of the Open Knowledge Meetups series.
