We have been undertaking research and taking part in event since 2012 into the impact of ‘Smart Cities’, ‘Smart technology’ and open data processes on third sector organisations, service delivery and future funding programmes.
Between 2012 and 2013 we:
participated in Smart City events organised by Digital Birmingham, including organising several briefing sessions for the city’s VCSE Chief Executives and Information Managers
participated in Shropshire Council’s ‘order orlistat overnight‘ conference
participated in Lasa’s ‘generic 60mg orlistat online‘ event
co-presented at orlistat online without prescription‘s ‘Open data and charities’ meeting
participated in a number of unconferences including orlistat in Canada, getting orlistat without doctor and orlistat online no prescription and overnight
contributed to Open Research Data Handbook in a can i buy orlistat online at the mail order orlistat(xenical)
spoke on a panel on ‘How we are making Birmingham a smarter city’ in a fringe event at low price rx online website orlistat conference
organised a buy generic orlistat online for developers and VCS colleagues
Work from 2013 onwards
RnR Organisation is one of 3 VCSE stakeholders who developed the xenical purchase (informal conference where delegates from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) support organisations e.g. CVSs, decide the agenda based on using technology better) starting in 2013. We have also participated in #SmartBrum hacks, organised an event to establish the where can i buy orlistat without a perscription? (a demonstrator site sharing data about the West Midlands), organised the first canadian generic orlistat no prescription meetup in Birmingham and attended their June 2014 datadive, spoke at orlistat buy no prescription event which brought together professionals and other people interested in using data for good.
We are thus establishing a new cohort of partners outside traditional VCSE activity and have been developing this work of data-informed decision making, alongside at least one of our clients, non prescription orlistat (RAWM). We are interacting with a new network of relevant organisations in both the open and the data analysis fields, Open Mercia (data users in the Midlands), order orlistat online consultation (a local cooperative business in the field), the mail order orlistat(xenical) (a national organisation) and orlistat order (an international organisation) which have a wider experience of ICT and Data Analysis which we can harness to benefit the VCSE sector.
At RAWM we were part of a 2015 Cabinet Office funded Digital Birmingham led consortium orlistat for sale without prescription funded under the pharmacy where you can purchase to help accelerate and automate open data extraction and publication processes from Birmingham City Council’s proprietary systems onto Birmingham’s new generic orlistat without a precsriptions to encourage citizens, communities, third sector to understand the value of open data to help solve community issues that matter most to them.
Our future research involving Smart Cities and open data will include:
Project monitoring and reporting
Monitoring client involvement and staff movement
We have example design briefs for the kind of work which the third sector needs in this area of work which we have put together. We would be interested to hear from analysts or others who might want to help us fulfil these briefs.
I did sign up to attend 60 mg orlistat, the “conference[s] about technologies that anyone can have a go at” and at the time I had every intention of heading to London on a Saturday morning to be amongst other people who have an interest in ‘open’ – source, data etc.
I only decided not to attend in person this week – it’s been a busy month already with our usual workload plus we went to a family get together in Wales, we’re restructuring the IT in one of our contracts, I’ve started going to a rebounding (trampolining on low trampolines) class, I went to a funeral, we volunteered and ran a session on working with the voluntary sector at were to buy orlistat, we’ve attended one half of a day course on innovation, we had a buy orlistat without prescription australia planning meeting, we took part in a New Economics Foundation event on Responding to Austerity and last night I represented the regional funders network at a barbecue. It was time to have a weekend off.
But this morning, in rain-soaked Birmingham, in a (chain – sorry!) cafe, I couldn’t resist ‘tuning in’ to the #OpenTech hashtag and, in reverse order, found out about (and shared) much of the following:
- xenical without rx changing the way academic research is accessed
- Blockchain provides trust, it takes the place of a third party who would otherwise provide trust
- Voting selfies: “Nothing in the law specifically bans photos, but the Electoral Commission strongly discourages them” do you need a prescription for orlistat in mexico
- @agentGav talking about the ‘state of the data’ and making it clear that ‘big data’ is a nonsense term created by vendors
- @FullFact, the charity, is looking for a developer this summer buy orlistat pills no prescription , and
- “Many politicians *still* mix up ‘big’, ‘shared’ and ‘open’ data. It’s terrifying,” says @agentGav
These particular tweets were important to me because: I want research data to be made more available, including to me; I’d heard of blockchain and wanted to know more; I had wondered about taking photos when I voted; I refer to big data in my work and now I know what an expert thinks of it; I think that, in the not too distant future, many charities will employ developers – I’ll certainly be encouraging them along that path; I am making it my business to ensure the politicians I know are clearer about the differences between ‘big’, ‘shared’ and ‘open’ data – and it’s good to know the ODI is too
Hashtags (and people who use them) – it’s one of the many reasons I love Twitter 🙂
Thanks to everyone who posted using #OpenTech
On Feb 21 (Open Data Day) and Feb 22 we were in Hampshire at buy orlistat online, helping with the organising, delivering and participating in a few of the unconference sessions, mainly to do with data and charities, and engaging community groups with data and open data, the latter referring to our work at RAWM with community groups to support the I need to order xenical without presciption and order it COD aka Birmingham Data Factory.
Fast forward to today and, in my role as Policy Associate (Information and Communications) for orlistat without a prescription, I’m searching for events to put on the RAWM website to share with the voluntary and community sector in the West Midlands region. I see that, on March 30th, buy orlistat 120mg which will include Tim Edwards, Group Head of Regeneration The Aspire Group discussing Buy Social, the national social enterprise directory.
This is the year when, as I’ve said a few times on Twitter, I’m finding my #worldscolliding and this is another one. What’s the connection?
Well, as part of Open Data Day, new no prescription orlistat was made available to Open Data Camp participants. This joint open data initiative between Social Enterprise UK, Spend Network and the Cabinet Office was made to ensure that, for the first time, there was the opportunity to track all spend with social enterprises by local authorities and central government. This is to increase accountability and identify new opportunities for investment in social enterprise
So, as members of SEWM via RnR Organisation, we’re looking forward to being at the SEWM members event on March 30th and seeing whether this data release on Open Data Day might also be of use to some of our fellow SEWM members, as well as giving us an opportunity to bring members up to date with the work we’ve been doing at RAWM on the use of data and open data by and for the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.
This could be the start of a whole new set of relationships!
buy orlistat online without a prescriptionI have so much to say about the various areas of work I’m doing that I don’t know where to start sometimes!
My friend Lorna Prescott (@dosticen on Twitter) says to start with the most enjoyable thing, the thing that you’re enjoying right now but I’m still stuck – sometimes this multi-tasking that women do means it’s hard to concentrate and get one thing done well i.e.to my own satisfaction.
The blog posts in my Drafts are:
- FutureShift Festival reflections
- When the public sector says “We haven’t got any money”
- Building a West Midlands Open Datastore
And another one that could develop into a series so I don’t even want to say what it is yet
I know I’m not the only person with a busy life, working in many different fields – it’s called a portfolio career after all – but if anyone has a solution to this dilemma that works for them, please share it with the rest of us!
This blog was inspired by a post (i want to buy pregnizone without a prescription) from Jo Ivens, CEO of Brighton & Hove Impetus who, in a previous role, worked on a project called how to get orlistat online no prescription in 60 days, which aimed to empower the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors to use orlistat cheap on online
Hi Jo, Always good to read what you have to say so thanks for posting ‘Steps on the road’. In the post you say “Sad to say that not much seems to have changed [around the VCS and data/open data] in the last 3 years” but I feel a bit more hopeful.
Some of the reasons for this: I’ve been to my first i need to order orlistat without a prescription (“unconference for communicators”) and first orlistat cheap online (“for people interested in how the public sector does digital stuff”) in the last 12 months, and I led sessions at both on the public sector and voluntary sector working together.
I’m not saying the sessions were packed out, but some people from each sector came, and we communicated about commissioning, procurement, asset transfer and data, and I think that’s where some of the hope is – with the people from both sectors who are willing to build relationships and who have access to contacts, tools, data and information which we can share and make changes with. I’ve also attended my first buy generic orlistat online no prescription quick delivery and orlistat purchase without prescription – again places where people from both sectors are meeting to talk and to listen, and hopefully, maybe sooner, maybe later, to collaborate to make the kind of changes we talk about.
Locally and in my region (West Midlands), there’s Open Mercia (@OpenMercia), a group of developers, data analysts and policy advisors interested in encouraging the release and use of open data for social, economic and environmental benefit. Our members come from the public sector, voluntary sector, academia and technology SMEs. With Open Mercia colleagues I organised an Open Knowledge Foundation Open Data event last year where some local developers, VCS colleagues and a few other interested people (about 20 people) came together to share and learn from each other, and make a case for opening up Charity Commission data. We’re now organising another event for orlistat buy cheap 2014 (Feb 22nd) and hope to attract more of the same people, and some new people have also said they want to be involved – small acorns, but I think we will grow.
Elsewhere in the sector, 4 of us from the voluntary sector in the Midlands organised the first orlistat with out a prescription (unconference for people connected with (staff, volunteers, trustees) voluntary and community sector infrastructure organisations) last June, attracting about 40 colleagues from the sector, interested in using digital tools (and data) more and better. We’re now starting to plan the second one, and VCS colleagues in the North have said they want to organise their own VCSS Camp.
In September 2013 I delivered a presentation on the VCS and Open data at Birmingham Science City Digital Working Group, a cross-sector group organised by Aston University, where I quoted from buy cheap generic orlistat online canada pharmacy no prescription. The VCS perspective was news to most of the attendees, but it was not unwelcome.
A well-attended ‘Data and charities’ roundtable for members of Pay COD for xenical without prescription (which I co-Chair) in September, with Nick Booth, founder of best place to buy orlistat online? (business which understands and helps people use social media for social good), and Andrew Mackenzie, a member of the Cabinet’s orlistat 120mg 2012-13, as speakers. Members lapped up the information, and we are now looking at the possibility of doing some simple visualisations of members data.
You probably know that orlistat buy online (“community of data scientists and non-profits working together to better collect, analyze, and visualize data in the service of humanity”) organised their first UK datadive (“weekend events that bring the data science community together with the non-profit community to tackle tough data problems”) in September 2013. This event looked at the data of some of the larger UK charities, which is fine, but I believe this model could also be scaled down.
I hope you (and anyone else who reads this) will find it hopeful, in that this kind of work is happening around the country. Once I started to understand your work on open data and the voluntary sector (although I’ve worked in the sector since 1990s and I’m a qualified librarian/community worker, it took me a while), I thought your Databridge UK work was ground-breaking and inspirational, and yes, I think it’s time has come!
