Almost halfway through the year-long Tenison Road project, we agreed at last months meeting that it would be a good idea to produce a newsletter that could be distributed along the road. The letter’s at the printers and will be ready to post next week. Have a sneak peak here:
Quick note to say we’ve got a site up now that summarises aspects of the data policy dialogue we posted about here, at the beginning of March. It’s a developing site that we hope will encourage a deeper discussion around the issues of policy and data, and especially their relevance to people’s real-world concerns (and hopes) – people like those living and working on Tenison Road. See here: http://data-policy.info.
To get the Tenison Road project underway, we want to invite you to the first of the project meetings to be held next month, Wednesday 20th November from 6:30pm to 8pm.At the meeting, we’ll be asking you to come up with questions you’d like to ask the people of Tenison Road. We’ll also be discussing what if any community data we’d like to share with a wider audience, beyond Tenison Road. With these themes in mind, we’re giving this first meeting the title: “Ask Tenison Road, tell the Nation.”We’ll be figuring out the details for the meeting over the coming weeks, but our hope is this broad format will help us to think about what data means for the street and what we’d like to use it for. We also envisage some of the questions to be asked and answered using the ‘Bull Frog” device we presented last week – once we’ve got the technical bits sorted out. We’ll be in touch with further details about the meeting in the next couple of weeks.
