The Guardian reports this morning that only 73 of the 472 local councils in the UK has an RSS feed of their website's news content. An organisation called Mash the State is campaigning for more Councils to provide this. They want non-personal data to be more widely available to the public.

There is a lot of technical detail I don't really understand. For instance the campaign feels that merely using RSS isn't really good enough and that Councils should really be using RSS Autodiscovery to show the right spirit of openness and accountability.
