Love to hear more about the practicalities of Freeing the PAF!
Question for that longer post on the practicalities: would freeing the PAF have implications for Ordnance Survey? It has a product called AddressBase which mixes the PAF with other datasets to let customers locate properties on a map.
I ask because Ordnance Survey is the rare example of a government agency that is profitable, so anything that interferes with that will be met with strong resistance in Whitehall

This is a good lesson in how to make a difference - talk about something nobody else is talking about.
(And I know you're being self-deprecating when you observe that other people have been doing the hard work on the technical side. We need both sorts of people for progress, the problem solvers and the communicators, and "tweeting annoyingly" is no less important - there's no point having a brilliant idea if nobody listens to you.)
