Updated 14 November 2012: the solution to get an RSS feed for a generic tag (not a tag by Delicious user) in this post no longer works (thanks Judith Townend for mentioning it on Twitter). If anyone has a workaround to get an RSS feed for a tag, please add it in the comments section.
This is an internal presentation I gave to researchers at the West Midlands Regional Observatory last month. My aims were to advocate for the open data movement’s principles, and to translate policy developments during 2009-2010 into meaningful and practical steps the researchers could take. I tailored the presentation to those working with datasets every day.
At the end of 2009, Councillor Ken Hawkins and I worked together to set up a new website that Ken uses to write about issues in Elmdon and Solihull in his role at Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.
My last post was on how to update your Google Docs settings to track published documents in Google Analytics. Currently, you can only documents track documents in your Analytics reports – not views of published spreadsheets or presentations. I’d like Google to add support for tracking published spreadsheets, in particular. At work, I advocate making statistics available online in multiple open formats and not, for example, solely providing statistics in an Excel file hosted on the corporate site for users to download.
