Open data & archives have been on my mind this week. Starting with a HighWire talk with the BBC we spoke of ‘perceptive media’, ‘object orientated media & production’ and ‘holodecks’ (kid you not). Here we spoke of the challenges and possibilities of opening and managing the now vast BBC archives. This was followed by tales of an adventure by RIG to HSBC archives, interesting finds from the banking sector and not at all what you would expect. Finally today, an open data workshop today with Julian Tate & Gerd Kortuem.
It is like realtime, rich archeology. Wonderful.
