Not as impressive as it sounds

The BBC are really excited by the news that "Web founder Tim Berners-Lee unveils a UK government website that aims to make public sector data freely available. "

I have visited the site a few times and the most common message that I see is "Your search returned no records". I get this if I look for individual data and even if I just click on List all data sets"... Impressive? Not really, no.

"Unfortunately the data is a little hidden away."
- quoting Richard Sterling who leads the project.

Using the tags http://data.gov.uk/data/tag seems to work.
