When I was at the Open Knowledge Festival in Helsinki, in between lectures, hackathons and workshops I managed to catch up with Julia Kloiber from the Open Knowledge Foundation. Julia is co-curating the Open Data track at the Summit of newthinking with Lorenz Matzat, and we talked a little about her work, open data, and (a bit of a theme for me in the last week or two) open transport data.
If you’ve got an idea for a presentation or workshop at the summit of newthinking, get in quick! the open call is only on for 2 more days!
Anyone interested to see what’s been happening with open transport in the USA should check out this video:
And for any of my fellow Berliners waiting for open data from the VBB or Deutsche Bahn, you can keep an eye on happenings with OpenVBB.
