I was looking at my rss reader and noticed four identical entries from the government’s open data website; why?
Three of them appear to be exactly the same entry but with slightly different urls:
and the fourth is apparently a different dataset:
Each post has exactly the same title:
and contains exactly the same text:
A monthly-updated list of all financial transactions spending over £25,000 made by the Department, as part of the Government’s commitment to transparency in expenditure.
Which department? And are they all about the same department or different ones?
If the government wants people to make responsible and effective use of its data, then it also needs to be able to communicate effectively. I think this set of posts is quite confusing, and that perhaps the people writing them need a little support in communicating more clearly.
