Gain an insight into the value of mash-ups - OpenAustralia podcast

Instantiate has posted an audio interview (MP3 podcast - 34Mb) with the founders of OpenAustralia, a non-partisan, website run by a group of volunteers site which aims to make it easy for people to keep tabs on their representatives in Australian Parliament.

The interview provides an insight into why volunteers establish this type of site, how Australians are using it and the value of supporting mash-ups of government data.

It also demonstrates how government departments (in this case the Department for Parliamentary Services) can positively and proactively work with community groups to support citizens (well done DPS!).
