OK, the Free Our Data has caught up (cf this post). Bizarrely their post on Free Our Data talks about 'yesterday's announcement' - which it wasn't - it was on Thurs. I expect their post was written on Friday but posted only yesterday.
Despite exciting intentions of reading the paper on GPS Vertical Control (etc) over lunch today, my lunch was instead spent cramming up on the OS Consultation in advance of a meeting about how to respond to it.
I'm meeting up with Vanessa Lawrence, DG of Ordnance Survey, on Thurs as she's delivering the annual UK Geoforum Lecture. We've dinner afterwards (oh hark - not just me!) so it'll be interesting to catch up.
