Invisible Airs: Project Completion
Well almost anyway. This weekend I installed the Invisible Airs contraptions in Bristol City Council chamber and also delivered a talk on how treating the Expenditure Over £500 .csv file available on the Bristol Data Hub as a black box rather than representative is far more interesting in terms of understanding how a database operates upon a council (or any enterprise for that matter).
Rather than detail that at length here I’d rather point you toward the archived recording of the event, available on Bristol’s iTV web portal. Though lengthy the whole talk is certainly worth listening to if you’d like a different vantage point on databases and open data. For those of you who may be time poor here are the significant markers
