Video: Open Source Entrepreneurship

DoESLiverpoolsquareA Fringe Event of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress, Open Source Entrepreneurship looked at ways entrepreneurs have found to mutually aid each others businesses for the good of all.
 
Especially in the technology sector, but across the start-up scene in general, Entrepreneurs are coming together to share commercial understanding. This is because business owners recognise they are more likely to thrive in the company of a strong local industry than they are in isolation. By assisting the growth of your competitor, you are adding value to your own company.

5926037286_6ddda6aab3_oWe finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.  

"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong. 

YOUR INVITED SO READ ON

Bar Camp LiverpoolI'm sure I have written about this but if not then here goes. On Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th of November DoES Liverpool will be holding Bar Camp Liverpool in Gostins Building, Hanover Street.

If you're not familiar with the Bar Camp concept they are participant led unconferences where the talks and discussions that take place are set by the people attending - anyone can and is encouraged to run a session on any topic they want so the whole event is driven by the conversations and interactions of the people attending.
