I was delighted to chair the inaugural meeting of the Open Data Governance Board in Dublin last Tuesday. It was great that Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin TD, was able to join us to outline his views on the importance of open data as a key element of the Irish Government's Reform Agenda.
Head of the Open Data Unit, Evelyn O'Connor, gave the Board a comprehensive background briefing on the progress made to date as well as the challenges facing the Irish public service in delivering open data that meets real user needs. I followed that with a short summary of my thoughts fairly self explanatory from the presentation below.
Full summary of the meeting here and agreed next steps. For the next few months I'll be managing the Twitter account
So get in touch if you'd like to talk to me about open data in Ireland or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A good short report, the content of which is music to my ears & a good example of being open, starting as I'm sure you mean to go on, Emer - I especially like the "Publish not send" slide which is an apposite lesson for many and nicely complements my other latest meme, "Automate that" (for any routine well-defined processes) - HT Roger Howell for that one at a recent Net Squared Midlands meetup
