    • The Dozer
      Apply huge force or do something so outrageous they can’t miss it
    • BCC DIY
      Functional rebuild by volunteers of £2.8m Birmingham City Council site
      Arguably most radical grass roots web project in this space right now
    • Make sure you do in fact have a bulldozer and don’t suffer a scale problem
      Can your bulldozer deliver?
      You look stupid if not
    • ‘A crack team of data ferrets working for the Task Force have returned from their first forays into the bowels of Government. ‘
      People inside the organisation who can seek out specific data targets and release them
      Say in chief executives office
    • Avalanche
      Bury them in FOI requests and build an external archive
    • Birmingham
      Epic parking ticket investigation using data from FOI
      Isolated weird behaviour by wardens
    • Snow machine
      Reference the data released in CKAN
    • For a big leap you need leadership
      External influencers make best impact
    • There are two philosophies to putting data on the web. The top-down one is to make a corporate or national plan, by getting committees together of all the interested parties, and make a consistent set of terms (ontology) into which everything fits. This in fact takes so long it is often never finished, and anyway does not in fact get corporate or national consensus in the end.
      The other method experience recommends is to do it bottom up. A top-level mandate is extremely valuable, but grass-roots action is essential. Put the data up where it is: join it together later.

    • You need a blend of all of these
      No magic bullet
      New government expected to continue drive to open data
    • Never ever bide your time and wait
      Bureaucracies are world class at waiting and they will win
