Open Data BoF*
A gathering for all those interested in open data, including government data, open data APIs, geodata, open social data, and more.
Open Source + Open Data = WIN. Come along to meet other open data afficionadoes from a range of projects, and learn how to use open data in your applications.
Examples of open data include: Freebase, Open Street Maps, data.gov, the Open Library Project, MusicBrainz, linked open data, and anything that allows you to access structured data — via an API or in bulk — under an open license or similarly permissive terms of service.
I’m the community director for the open data repository Freebase (http://freebase.com/), and a long-time open source developer and advocate.
