Submission Tim Berners-Lee Unveils Government Data Project->

Sri.Theo writes: For a long time the UK hasn't had the default access to Government information as the US has, but a campaign by Tim Berners-Lee finally yielded results with a website containing access to masses of local information being made available. The hope is that this will make access to government services easier and more useful for everyone. Crucially its not just for developers, everyone can submit and commit on ideas for use of the data and hopefully other like minded individuals can take it up.
