After successfully securing large data donations from TED, the BBC, the Royal Society of Chemistry, Quora, Songkick, universities and more, I'd like to share my experience and offer (and solicit) suggestions for improving our approaches to donors, and our workflow for accepting and processing data. How can we conduct sensitive negotiations, with public and commercial bodies, while maintaining the open and accountable ethos of our movement? How can we grow a data donation into a more rounded GLAM collaboration?
