Noting Ton's recent interesting comments on 'socially open' data
could I suggest that an interesting session for Open Government Data Camp would be "Making open data useful".
In addition to the minimum requirements of licensing and re-usable formats, what can we do to encourage and enable use of open data? This could include the kind of social recommendation and feedback approaches that Ton mentions, as well as approaches to discovery and exploration of data and input from the developer community on what the open data publisher can do to make the data easy to work with.
Perhaps it's too broad a topic and should be split into different strands, but I'd certainly like to discuss this topic in London next month.
