About the organiser: Mark helps organisations and people connect with each other. He’s witnessed many “light bulb moments” associated with unconferences, and is particularly fascinated when there’s a mash-up of people with a range of different backgrounds and perspectives sharing ideas about how open data can be used in different ways (and for the greater good)
