Re: Daily Mail?
@ Evan Essence
Not sure, did a quick search for his Open Data User Group, but it doesnt really exist on wikipedia(the link to it does...). I get a feeling its a recent rebranding of something else.
This whole Open Data User Group really just looks like a front for companies to siphon off private data, it appears to be under control of companies and doesnt really have any 'user' interest groups at hand, the british equivalent of the EFF/Bit for Freedom etc.
Dodgy all around really, if I wouldnt know better I would scream scam from the top of my lungs.
EDIT: There is a certain irony in his request for El Reg to "Please engage with the Open Data User Group for a balances view". Looks like his group himself never attempted any such thing!
