What does the election result mean for publishers and startups?

Yesterday I took part in a panel on this topic at #Jeecamp2010. You can watch again the live tweeting of the event here.

The main point I made was that the combination of opening up government data, extending freedom of information and publishing details of government contracts will provide a flood of raw material. It not only will make it easier for those outside the traditional media to cover stories in expert detail but also will make it necessary for them to do so for the health of our democracy – because the traditional media is unlikely to be able to cope with all that new information on its own.
