Winning With Water

By the DATA eh? team 
Just a note on having mentioned in the previous post about the BuzzData story telling contest ... they have a winner!

Congrats to Toronto-based business analyst Martin Madginier who used City of Toronto water data for his entry. Be sure to read his story about water consumption.

Other News
In other news this week: Trish Garner, Denis Carr, Gina Porcarelli and Keith McDonald were part of U of T 's "OA Week" (Open Access Week) presenting information specifically about toronto.ca/open along with two other Open Data champions:
  • Jury Konga - Principal, eGovFutures Group
  • Tracey Lauriault - PhD student, Carleton University and co-founder of CivicAccces.ca (Citizens for Open Access to Civic Information and Data)
Thanks for the invite to Marcel Fortin for setting up the session. And thanks to the attendees for some great questions. We invite you to continue the exchange of views here at DATA eh?
We'd love to enlarge the conversation to those new to data or unclear about "why all the fuss ..."
