Issues in Open Access to Research (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

The success of open government data is indisputable. By empowering data scientists as well as the general public to interrogate publicly shared government data sets, we have been able to discover new trends and correlations as well as spot malfeasance. Open data affects publicly funded academic research at a governmental and funder level as well, including the types of research supported and what happens with the data collected. Nonetheless, it took a recent statement from the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to ignite the conversation about open data between individual academic researchers.

"Pinterest is a digital pinboard application which started just last year but has quickly become one of the top 10 most trafficked social networking websites according to Hitwise. During the second week in December the website had over 11 million visitors. This is pretty impressive considering that the site is still in the invite-only stage."

Chris Osterndorf:  "From films, to toys, to parks, Walt Disney's original vision has come to fruition so completely it’s hard to imagine even he knew what was possible.  And one of the chief ways Disney has kept that original vision intact is by building a reputation for being very, very litigious."
