Keywords for myself: cycling, cities, openess, open data, civil society, information society, government as a platform, capoeira, community…
I am Antti Poikola, an Open Data and Open Participation advocate from Finland. I am also a start-up entrepreneur and independent consultant at HILA Open Ltd.
In this blog I write mostly in English and mostly about topics related to Open Government Data and Information Society.
It would be really cool to get more comments 🙂
I was the main author for the “Public data – an introduction to opening the information resources” -guidebook (Poikola, Kola, Hintikka 2010) which was published by the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications.
Before becoming a full time entrepreneur I used to work as a researcher in media technology at the Aalto University. I keep my CV updated at LinkedIn.
