Make encanvas free to all data.gov.uk users

Encanvas is a data mashup site builder that enables non technical people to design and deploy portal applications that consume information without needing coding or scripting skills. The technology was developed in Oxfordshire by NDMC and is now a US corporation because we couldn't get funding in the UK (sorry!). However, we'd like to invite data.gov.uk to make a platform available so that children, entrepreneurs and people with an interest in public information can create their own sites and applications without incurring the complexity of using scripting and coding technologies. This makes information more available to more people in more ways.
