Doodling with @jaCattell to develop #SmartKnowledgeWikis for structured #openData for #openDefra in #openCulture style

The Russian Dolls illustrate ‘nesting’ and ‘drilling down’ as well as the transition from perceptions in 3D space and visualisations on 2D screens

James Arthur Cattell calls himself a ‘government hacker’. Typical for his age group, he did not only grow up with computers, but also learned to write code before he would have learned about Shakespeare.

He is an ‘evangelist’ of #openDATA and #openCULTURE and facilitates ‘unConferences’ to encourage both.

I met him at the openDEFRA event when he invited me into the DataCave that serves as an open space for co-creativity – across the many governmental departments – despite the dispersion of team members nationwide.

The last time I had met him at the Open Data Institute where we heard the Friday lunchtime lecture on Who Owns your Reputation?

Thanks to James, I met Russian Irina Bolychevsky who inspired me to bring a set of Russian Dolls as a tool to explain my proposal about openDfT: to make better transport policy by gathering, preparing, visualising and interpreting transport data using 3dM Diagrams.

As a result, I’ve updated my response to the techUK paper on the ‘Big Data Supply Chain’ into Smart Knowledge Wikis.

And James tweeted: do you doodle?
