I’ve read some really great posts on all angles of the Local GDS idea in recent weeks from a lot of people I respect.
Ben Welby made a number of cogent arguments in favour.
Phil Rumens suggested why he thought it shouldn’t happen.
Eddie Copeland of Policy Exchange has argued strongly for it to happen – and I find much of merit in his riff about open standards being a critical enabler of change.
Sarah Prag added a particularly interesting flavour to the discussion, really focusing on exploring aspects of the problem rather than jumping to the solution
Rob Miller expresses many opinions I share in his post pointing to the potential stifling of smaller local providers if we take a monolithic approach.
And many people track the whole discussion back to a post by Rich Copley – itself inspired by Dominic Campbell’s tweet in December 2013.
