San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This month we'll be hearing from Bill Roberts
Bill (from local company, Swirrl) is a member of two recently set up government groups related to open data: the Data Strategy Board and the UK Government Linked Data Working Group. He will explain what these organisations are meant to do and how they hope to improve the UK open data landscape - and how OpenDataManchester members and others can make their opinions and requests heard.
We'll also have the usual opportunity for general news and discussion, and the chance for people to show off what they're working on.
We'll probably head to Common-Bar across the street after the event for a drink
