There has been a lot going on with regard to digital inclusion and civic engagement. I keep seeing reports of research that I really should read for work, but just don't have the time to; and even if I did, many of them are pretty impenetrable.
This series of three pilot events is a chance for us to pool our knowledge of that research, and understand it through discussion. It is not intended as a platform for report authors to talk about their research.
Each week one person will have read one report. They will present the key points for the rest of us to discuss.
We are all volunteers, with a shared interest in understanding other people's research. I won't be inviting people to come and talk up their own work.
No-one's being paid for this, but I do need to cover the cost of the room. Therefore there will be a charge of £3 on the door for anyone who isn't a member of Moseley Exchange.
- Monday 12 April
Simon Whitehouse will talk about Policy options for geographic information from Ordnance Survey and Ordnance Survey OpenData (eg pulling maps into your blog posts, implications for public bodies opening up their data and the new products that might be created).

Why can't we see who's attending?
For some reason I can't get the list of attendees to appear here. Eventbrite's help pages tell me there should be an option to display them, but there isn't. I can only guess that it must be because I've set this as a recurring event. Sorry about that.
