School Of Data - Shades Of School Of Rock

By the DATA eh? team

Rufus Pollock, Director and Co-Founder of the Open Knowledge Foundation, and Philip Schmidt, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Peer 2 Peer University announced recently a School of Data.

We're reminded of the movie: School of Rock. Where we see the parallel in the call for support is the unlimited potential for what the school can be. Like the School of Rock, We expect a number of brilliant people (and are not all the people working in this budding area, "brilliant"?) to bring amazing ideas to the table. And, like the movie, there may be quite a difference in how the school might come together.

We put in an expression of interest - which is not to say we think we are "brilliant" but we sure like this idea.
