SlashOpen framework in place – next steps: making the case for Open Data and badges!

I took a fresh look at this site today and, all modesty aside, am still quite happy with the way it is coming together. I’ve put some more detail in the About page on how people can use SlashOpen to join and help spread the Open Data movement, and created a new Guidelines page containing a simple checklist of info that should be available on /open pages. Still looking for more info and input from others that have more experience with this than I do. Please drop me a line with feedback or contribute a comment to Ruth’s post on what should be included on /open pages.

The next priority from my point of view is to get more info together to explain why Open Data is so important – to that end I welcome contributing bloggers. Contact me if you’re interested or go ahead and create an account. I will then give you author status so you can contribute to the blog. Thanks!

I also would like to get a SlashOpen logo and badge organized as soon as possible – let me know if you’re interested in doing this or have ideas for getting this done. Shouldn’t be that hard to do.
