Thanks for all the links to my recent post on six questions to ask yourself before making an FOI request.
It was written partly because some colleagues had suggested we default to FOI too quickly these days, and partly because some FOI officers had said to me that we default to FOI too quickly!
Among those to link with me was FOIMan, a blog written by an FOI officer at a UK Public Authority. He detected a note of cynicism in my post, which perhaps isn’t unsurprising for a journalist, but perhaps also proves that sometimes we’re too quick to assume the worst.
Anyway, his is a great blog which gives an interesting insight into FOI from the other side of the fence.
