The notion of allowing access to your website content and data via API's and other machine readable means is well embedded in geek circles.

This presentation aims to look at the non-technical reasons why these approaches are a good idea, arguing that it is time for Machine Readable Data (MRD) approaches to be better communicated to content owners, budget holders and other non-technical stakeholders.

  • zakm Zak Mensah, Digital strategy at University of Bristol I also really enjoyed this talk. We have been saying about making all of our content available in ways that others can use and have begun this. So its great to be able to point to your work and be one of the telephones without masking tape!
    your point in the comments about evidence of ROI is crucial too, and that applies to other services like my use of SlideShare and Twitter etc.

    *Also loved the iceberg slide - users dont care what lies beneath.

    Cheers

  • dmje Mike Ellis, Director at Thirty8 Digital Thanks Scott - your positive comment is appreciated. I think a lot of the knowledge is starting to build - evidence on ROI, information on what works and what doesn't. It just needs a channeling process to ensure that as many relevant people as possible get to share that information. I did a blog post to hang off these slides over at http://electronicmuseum.org.uk/2009/07/13/pushing-mrd-out-from-under-the-geek-rock/ 4 years ago

  • sleslie Scott Leslie, Educational Technologist at BCcampus Great talk, and fantastic images. The trick, it would seem, is figuring out what the bare minimum conditions for re-use/re-mix are. What do we need to insist on at the outset, even when we don't yet know all the ways in which the data is to be reused, but that aren't such ridiculously high barriers that they needlessly burden early-stage projects. insisting on asking 'where is the api?' when procuring new apps/services is a good one. So is clean XHTML. It will differ for different projects, but I wonder if there are already some simple heuristics to point people at who are starting new projects? In any case, great talk, the non-geeks need to understand this. 4 years ago
