Journalist.co.uk notes that the BBC has employed Steve Bowbrick as a blogger-in-residence for six months, to look at making their site more open, and to specifically work on the Common Platform project. It’s worth keeping an eye on his progress (he promises to blog everything).
His specific aim is to address these questions for the BBC Future and Technology team:
• How open can they really be?
• Should we share this insight with outsiders?
• Should we be opening our banks of content and code to licence fee payers, entrepreneurs and organisations?
