Free Our Data

A must read is the Guardian's Free Our Data series. Their latest appears to be an attempt at crowdsourcing investigative journalism. See: You Too Can be a Citizen Journalist. Their topic is a bit wonkish: obtaining mapping data that the UK government must provide for a fee, but that may be a strategic decision. If that works, who knows what they may work on next. For the good folks at the PG and Trib or elsewhere, maybe its time to stop reacting to bloggers and move beyond being the Tail that Wags the Blog. Just my 2 cents.
