Annotations just in today…

It’s the first full working day for the new facility to annotate Freedom of Information (FOI) requests on WhatDoTheyKnow, and people have been hard at it.

Mr Ormerod points out that private information isn’t necessarily so private if someone has died, so perhaps the exemption the MOD used shouldn’t apply.

Trevor R Nunn has posted three annotations (e.g. this one) to show that his three FOI requests are being treated as one. The annotations facility is great for handling edge cases like this, which don’t happen often enough to be worth explicitly adding to the code, but need some mention.

And finally Edward Betts has processed the list of post boxes retrieved by FOI into a more structured data format, and posted up a link to it. Exactly the kind of collaboration I love to see!

And that’s just this morning!
