Today is the first Data Thursday of the month. Every Thursday between now and 27 April, we’ll be publishing some data for you to start playing with. This week we’ve got archive data from experimental music & film festival pioneers Arika, we’ve got Edwin Morgan data from the Special Collections team at the University of Glasgow Library, we’ve got carbon footprint data for university venues that double as festival venues from the University of Edinburgh’s energy team. There are also datasets from Glasgow Arts, Luath Press, The Skinny, the List and Creative Scotland.
We’re publishing slices of the full sets for now – you’ll be able to get your hands on everything when you turn up on the day. Of course, headings and layout will be exactly the same, it’s just there’ll be much more content. Actually, it gets more exciting. We’re making an API to help you handle this stuff. More on that soon.
Next Thursday’s looking like it’ll be just as good as this one. We’re prepping data from Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and Glasgow Museums at the moment. More on that once Easter’s out the way.
