Access to PSI – Who is doing what?
We know that there are many people already working (both in and outside of government) on making PSI more accessible and useable.
For example over the last five years I have worked closely with a number of government projects designed to develop policy, technical and licensing solutions – such as the Government Information Licensing Project (GILF) (see its Stage 2 Report). Our team has also worked closely with federal agencies such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics who are now providing free PSI under CC licences, AGIMO and the Cross Jurisdictional Chief Information Officers Committee (CJCIOC).
I know that most governments in the country are now doing work in this area and many individuals and industries are also active.
Can people let us know what they are doing, proposing to do or want to do in this space? Preferably for the record, make a comment on this blog but if you wish communicate with us is in some other way.
(Note, this is intended to be a first cut at a project which the Taskforce may wish to do in a more systematic way, and as a result we’re likely to return to the subject more formally. But in the meantime, I thought this would be a useful preliminary exercise).
