Last week Tuesday an Open Data Meet-up took place in Graz, Austria, the first of its kind outside of Vienna.

I was asked to present there, but could not make it in person. So I presented via Skype-video, which except for one or two small glitches worked very well.

It felt fitting to present in Graz, as that is where two-and-a-half years ago I came across Open Government Data as theme, by meeting Keith Andrews at PolitCamp where I was presenting about the impact of Web2.0 on politics.

Heinz Wittenbrink whom I have the pleasure of knowing for some time already, is a teacher at FH Joanneum where he explores with his students how Web2.0 can be used for modern day journalism. He was one of the people organizing the Graz meet-up, and videotaped the entire session. All presentations can be found on Vimeo.

The full title of my talk was ‘Value Creation with Open Government Data, a Community Perspective‘.

Here are my slides, including transcript:
