For the fourth year running, the National Library of Scotland is generously hosting our January meet-up! Once again, there is a great line-up of speakers to get Open Knowledge off to an exciting start for 2017.
Lightning talks: * Gill Hamilton: Welcome * Susan Ross, Gaelic Wikipedian / Uicipeidiche Gàidhlig at NLS * Fred Saunderson: Implementing the NLS Open Data Plan * Andy Hyde: Mapping Sanctuary in Edinburgh * Andreea Pascu: What we can learn from off-road bike counter data * Gregor Boyd: New developments at http://statistics.gov.scot * Cat Magill: Working with Energy Data in Kenya
Open Knowledge Meet-ups are friendly and informal evenings for people to get together to share and argue all areas of openness. Come and join discussions around open knowledge and open data – from politics and philosophy to practicalities of theory and practice. Information about Open Knowledge Scotland and about some of our past meet-ups can be found at http://scot.okfn.org.
Home to over 15 million printed items, 7 million manuscripts, and over 2 million maps the National Library of Scotland is a treasure trove of information.
