Call for stories about collaboration

CCHQ has put out a call for stories about collaboration in the Commons, particularly in the fields of arts, journalism, and 3D printing. Get in touch for more information.

Kiwi open data business

We have updated our case study on Koordinates, a NZ business dealing in open geospatial data. Written by our good friend Matt McGregor.

Christchurch housing data released

Christchurch City Council has released its first public API: property sales data available free of charge. It’s not fully open data yet but this is a great first step.

CC around the world

Carnegie Hall has released its performance history as open data under CC0. A study in the US has shown that ‘fair use’ industries make up one sixth of its economy. Great interview with Isla Haddow-Flood on the Wiki Loves Women and Wiki Loves Africa projects. Elsevier has acquired Bepress and a lot of people are not happy.
