UK Government Data opened up for re-use

Advised by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Professor Nigel Shadbolt and others, the UK government are opening up their data for reuse. The site gives a way into the wealth of government data and is said to be under constant development.

We’re very aware that there are more people like you outside of government who have the skills and abilities to make wonderful things out of public data. These are our first steps in building a collaborative relationship with you.
The site includes a blog highlighting innovative uses of government data, apps for mobile data use and a forum for the discussion of submitted ideas for how the data can be used and improved.

We're sure there will be lots of potential opportunity here for private/public parntership in helping develop more effective social and commercial marketing activity.
