<trackbot> ACTION-116 -- Brand Niemann to contact Sunlight Foundation regarding participation in the Linked Open Government Application Challenge -- due 2010-10-22 -- OPEN
<Brand> I'd be glad to speak more about the project, Brand, but I'm afraid I wont be able to join this call. I will review the links, though, and hope that you might have time for a one on one conversation soon.

Michael: involve http://www.okfn.org/?
<Brand> Tim McNamara said: I've been working with a few government spreadsheets. Their quality is ...variable. I've spent some time cleaning things up, however departments seem to be very reluctant to updating their records with something infected from the outside world. Do you think that there is any scope for CKAN to hold blobs of data as alternative sources?
<Brand> Brand said I have focused on working with a number of US government data spreadsheets with high quality that are updated regularly and would not suggest using blobs of data as alternatives since one looses the ability to do analytics/statistics on those data. See http://semanticommunity.net/
<Brand> For: My 'user story': I have a spreadsheet that I've cleaned up and want to provide back to the community so that the clean-up process doesn't need to be repeated. I want to upload that somewhere easily and forget about it. I use Spotfire to store the cleaned up spreadsheets, do statistics and visualizations, and provide back to the commmunity as CSV downl
<Charlie> Super, thanks.
