Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

In what is excellent news (via the Open Knowledge Foundation), and hopefully a model for other government agencies in Australia, the ABS has just announced that their soon to be released site update will be licensed under the liberal Create Commons Attribution 2.5 Australia Licence.

Here’s hoping that we’ll also start seeing more programmatic interfaces to the ABS and other agencies data, to help facilitate mashups based on these data sets.

Congratulations to the ABS for this move!

We make events for the professionals shaping Australia's digital future
