Monopolies and Us: An Interview with Gavin Starks

Gavin Starks
One of open data’s great architects speaks about network thinking.

“I think we’ve got a lot of work to do on understanding how to talk about data in the first place.”

“I think a lot of the reason for events like Brexit is that the ‘control’ the people want is actually about the distance they feel away from the society they’re living in…”

“Trying to stop monopoly behaviour is really hard, and one of the actions there that we need to drill into is how do we shorten the path between innovation and policy in the digital age?”
