HK Open Source  conference on Saturday 19 October - there was lots of interest in open data and 2 presentations directly related.  The LicenCheck application is a good example of actually using the datasets from Data.One.  My presentation on Data.One got the predictable comments 'I didn't know these were available.'  Well done +Haggen So and +Sammy Fung for a very well run conference.

Like water and oil, ‘open data’ and ‘China’ take a bit of engineering if you want them to mix. Stories like those of human rights advocate Xu Zhiyong, arrested for rallying citizens to demand public disclosure of their officials’ wealth, are more the norm.

But rather than ask for information, a group of young techies are going out and finding it, despite the challenges in its use and the risks of digging too deep.
