Abstract: Webcast sponosred by Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (SLAIS). What good is open data if we don’t know how to find and use it? The digital age has ushered in new opportunities to better understand our communities and demand accountability from our governments. In an intensive two-day master class, digital publishing expert Phillip Smith introduced some of the “working with data” tricks he has learned in over 15 years working with advocacy organizations, publishers and groups such as Civic Access and the Electoral Data Consortium. He is currently working to advance the field of “news innovation” through Mozilla and The Tyee.
