Government report: The Power of Information

Government report: The Power of Information

The Cabinet Office have commissioned a report – The Power of Information – from Ed Mayo (chief exec of the
National Consumer Council) and Tom Steinberg (the man behind mySociety and
PledgeBank) to look into the ways government can benefit from user-generated
sites, particularly with a view to creating APIs to allow mash-ups with public
sector data (like the Ordnance Survey). Press announcement here.

Good to see the that the power of Social Media has penetrated to the heart of UK Gov. But can they resist the urge to regulate it?!
