San Francisco commits to open data

San Francisco commits to open data | Data used creatively | Scoop.it

San Francisco is a long-standing technology Mecca, so it’s only fitting that city and county leaders recently committed to boosting its open data movement online.

“Openness and transparency are the fundamental basis for any successful government, particularly in an internet age,” said David Chiu, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

“We see, in many jurisdictions around the country, that when you release government data, you have an improved relationship between government and citizens. That has led to a lot of success in how you improve government, particularly when you harness the ideas and the talents of the public in how to analyze public data. That can lead us to innovating both government and our communities.”

Open data highlights from European Data Forum 2013 in Dublin | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog

Open data highlights from European Data Forum 2013 in Dublin | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog | Data used creatively | Scoop.it

Over 500 data professionals gathered last week at European Data Forum conference in Dublin. This is the annual meeting place for industry, research, policy makers, and community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of Big Data in Europe. One of the main sentiments throughout the event was a profound interest inopenly licensed data and developments in the field of linked data.

The Open Knowledge Foundation was represented by Sander van der Waal and myself, and we took part with reference to the LOD2 project (an EU-funded project on Linked Open Data) and the Apps for Europe project (supporting apps competitions around Europe) – as well as to stimulate open data discussions in general. That seemed to have an increasingly fertile ground, as one of the main sentiments throughout the conference was a profound general interest not only in linking data, but also making them legally and technically open.

Open your data to the world

When Neil Fantom, a manager at the World Bank, sat down with the organization's technology team in 2010 to talk about opening up the bank's data to the world at large, he encountered a bit of unfamiliar terminology. "At that time I didn't even know what 'API' meant," says Fantom.
