Friday lunchtime lecture: Burn the digital paper! A call to arms

Friday 22 November 2013, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE

Francis Irving, CEO of ScraperWiki, takes us through examples from working with international agencies and businesses, with a shot of Stafford Beer and a soupçon of PDFs.
