This is the personal blog of Mark Braggins, and includes a bunch of stuff from past lives including local government, open data publication, event management, and public policy think tanking.
Back in my local government days, I founded the Hampshire Hub data store on behalf of 20+ organisations in-and-around Hampshire. Sadly, that was switched off a couple of years after I left as part of cost-cutting measures in local government.
In 2019 I joined Drawnalism as an Associate, and later took on Business Development and Research (working part-time). Drawnalism are experts in drawing knowledge and are often found drawing ‘live’ at events On the Air. Drawnalism produce marvellous illustrations and animated videos At the Studio.
I’m interested in lots of things, in no particular order: society, politics, local public services, open data, technology (and what you can do with it), wildlife, photography (mostly photos of wildlife), the countryside, and long distance walking.
All views are my own, unless they’ve been borrowed from others. I always intend to give credit where it’s due. Please let me know of you think I should have tipped my hat to you or someone else. You can also find me on the following networks and blogs:
