If you want to get more involved with Open Data in Manchester there is an active Googlegroup here

Open Data Manchester is looking at getting formally constituted as a CIC – Community Interest Company – It would be great to get some feedback on this as it will allow ODM to develop and deliver projects.

As well as the usual news about forthcoming data releases and initiatives, Vin Sumner from Clicks and Links will be talking about the Manchester Open Data City portal and a chance to responsed to the Making Open Data Real and Public Data Corporation consultations. These consultations will effect the UK Government’s policy towards data and will have considerable impact.

If you fancy doing a presentation or if you have anything to add just let us know by posting to the Googlegroup
