The revolution will NOT be in Open Data | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog

The revolution will NOT be in Open Data | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it

A common narrative in many “open” development projects goes along the lines of “provide access to data/information –> some magic occurs –> we see positive change.” In essence, because of the newness of this field, we only know what we THINK happens, we don’t know what REALLY happens because there is a paucity of documentation and evidence.

 

It’s problematic that we often use the terms data, information, and knowledge interchangeably, because:

Data is NOT knowledge.

Data is NOT information.

Information is NOT knowledge.

Knowledge IS what you know. It’s the result of information you’ve consumed, your education, your culture, beliefs, religion, experience – it’s intertwined with the society within which you live.

Data Storytelling Takes Center Stage at OKCon in Geneva | Idea Lab | PBS | Digital Humanities and Linked Data | Scoop.it

The biannual Open Knowledge Conference, the world’s leading event in open knowledge, is taking place this week in Geneva.

 

This year’s OKCon asks: How can open data become a deeper part of public life? Citizen data explorers and investigators are crucial — that is why a full track of events will cover evidence and stories, exploring open data in advocacy and journalism.
