I am a software engineer. My recent work has been on data for the solidarity economy, focusing on the use of Linked Open Data (video) to represent initiatives within the solidarity economy. To test this out, I converted the Co-ops UK open data to Linked Data; and put it on a map. I presented this work at the Open 2017 conference.
I’m here because I’d like to see a web of data created for the solidarity economy that can help it become more visible; promote co-operation between co-ops, and fuel applications that compete with the commercial giants. CoTech seem like a good place to find people with whom this resonates!
