Inspiration from Manchester

This Declaration for responsible and intelligent data practice is very interesting

Things to cover?

We could address:

  • What do we need to tackle?
  • What do we need from Government?
  • How should we engage with the public sector?
  • How do we get volunteers (not the same old faces) to step up?
  • How do we best work together as a group for maximum effect?

Watty62 (talk) 12:17, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

  • campaigns (how do we show a need for and demand data on subject 'x')
  • tooling (how do we make it easier for publishers to get their data out there)
  • standards (existing, needed, development)
  • data hosting (where can community group Y publish their data?) etc..

Output from SODU Session: How do we share experience, best practice, examples as a community?

Start With Why

I'm a fan of Simon Sinek's book 'Start With Why'. For any group to have longevity there is a need for a shared purpose. What is ours? Jez Nicholson (talk) 09:03, 21 September 2020 (BST)

That's a good point, Jez. The conversation in the session at SODU2020 was that we don't have a place where we can share stories, record case studies, index research and projects. So a place (wiki or other) that we could do that as a community - whether in civic society or government or in the private sector - would be a good starting point. People were, as I recall, agnostic of the form or platform to be used. This is as good as any as a starting point.

So the why(s) would include

  • we need to share 'stuff'
    • case studies
    • best practice
    • research
    • projects
  • we need a place to grow a community
  • we need to be able to discuss ideas,
  • we need to be able to capture suggestions for the development of SG policy (to be pulled into the OGP process)
  • we need something more solid than Slack to capture outputs, make it findable, referencable

I'm sure that there is more. Let's hear them, everyone!

The next question should be "who for?" Who are our user groups? This will help identify what content is needed, what of it is missing and how to prioritise it.

The who would include

Group Data Creators Data Consumers Other Interests
Organisations Data Gatherers Data Communicators Management
Community Groups Data Gatherers Data Communicators
Education Educators
Others Journalists/ media/ bloggers OpenDataScot Editors

Should there also be a Data Providers column due to not all gathers having the ability to host / provide the data gathered? -- AndrewSage (talk) 12:17, 29 September 2020 (BST)
