The Open Data initiative took another huge step forward yesterday
(Thursday 3 November) with the launch of a new initiative that will
enable consumers to gain unprecedented access to personal data from
banks, utilities, telecoms providers and a range of other companies.
Speaking at the launch of the Midata scheme in London, Professor Nigel
Shadbolt, of ECS-Electronics and Computer Science at the University of
Southampton, and Government Open Data Adviser, told the BBC: "This is
about getting the information that companies hold about me and you
back to you in a form you can use."
