I’ve been off for a few days, so inevitably there has been a burst of interest in my YouTube case whilst I’ve been avoiding checking emails, Twitter etc!
Here’s a round-up of links I’ve caught up with:
- Chris Taggart of CountCulture & the fab OpenlyLocal has blogged the case in detail from an open data perspective, leading to a Twitter challenge to local gov minister Grant Shapps to sort things out.
- Jim Killock, ORG’s Executive Director, has covered the case on his personal blog, eliciting a lovely comment by Richard Stallman.
- Cory Doctorow, a fellow ORG Advisory Council member, highlighted Jim’s post and my case on Boing Boing.
- Brighton Politics Blogger blogged a thumping post in my support.
- TechDirt also covered the story a few days ago as have News from Brighton and The Argus.
- I’ve been informed that Wayne Beglan will be the barrister representing the council to fight off my appeal. His profile charmingly notes that “If you need someone to go in there, fight your corner and stick the boot in, Beglan is your man.” Roll on 3rd November.
Thank you for all the support, it is greatly appreciated.
