Hi all,

We're pleased to announce the Panton Principles for Open Data in Science:

  http://blog.okfn.org/2010/02/19/launch-of-the-panton-principles-for-open-data-in-science/
  http://www.pantonprinciples.org/

The Panton Principles were authored by Peter Murray-Rust, Cameron
Neylon, Rufus Pollock and John Wilbanks at the Panton Arms on Panton
Street in Cambridge, UK - with input from the Working Group on Open
Data in Science.

You can endorse the principles at:

  http://www.pantonprinciples.org/endorse

We'd be most grateful for any help disseminating the principles - by
blogging, microblogging, forwarding to relevant colleagues and so
forth.

The 'Is It Open Data?' service, which allows anyone to make and
publicly record enquiries about the openness of (scientific) datasets,
is also now live at:

All the best,

--
