techcrunch logoMike Butcher's plea in TechCrunch for the BBC to open up more of its data and tools has started a lively conversation. Matt Cashmore of BBC Backstage has commented in this post.

Tom Scott of the BBC's Audio & Music Interactive team has also responded at length. A quote from Tom:

As Michael recently presented at the Semantic Camp our plans are to join programmes, music, events, users and topics. All available on the web, for ever, for people to explore and open for machines to process.

It's also worth a look at Ashley Highfield's post from last year, Open Standards.

Meanwhile, Neil Berkett of Virgin Media's comments in this article that net neutrality was "a load of bollocks" seem to have stirred up a campaign against him. In MediaGuardian today he's quoted as saying that his comments were "flippant" but that he doesn't regret opening up the debate.
