Many of you are aware of the Where Does My Money Go? (@wdmmg)
Twitterfeed, but OpenSpending now has its own feed (@openspending).
Over the last week there has been some interest from data journalists
looking at using the platform for training purposes (details below).
We would be very interested to hear more about how people intend to
use OpenSpending - so do get in touch! We will also be posting updates
there, so keep your eyes peeled...
Below I have also listed some recent press coverage of Where Does My
Money Go? and OpenSpending. If you spot any coverage that has escaped
our radar, I would be very grateful if you could send us the link.
