Data for Democracy at the Open Data Institute

I attended James Smith‘s talk on Data for Democracy at the ODI on Friday. Find out how the talk unfolded via Storify.

He is challenging our political system by:

– creating a system to make political spending transparent
– creating a system to write political manifestos collaboratively with others
– standing as MP for Horsham with a new party he’s created, Something New

This is a man who is acting on his beliefs and demonstrating how change can be made. Go James!
