Workshop at Hub Westminster:   Opening Up Product Data - Empowering Consumers with Open Data This workshop event was an interesting perspective on the notion of open data and participative consumers.  It made me think of how communication design can allow consumer and producer to have a conversation, through which not only product data becomes open and transparent, but also, builds meaning into the product and experience.

Provenance is a new company with an interesting approach to this issue of product open data.  I think there is room to innovate the approach to how this ‘conversation’ between producer and consumer is designed at the moment.
