Jason Hare's insight:

This is a metric that is missing from the measurement of a PSA's effectiveness in delivering a roadmap from open data to open government. Thank you Ivan for sharing.

Ivan Begtin's curator insight, December 27, 2012 3:33 AM

The Open Governance Index measures the true openness of eight open source projects – Android, Qt, Symbian, MeeGo, Mozilla, WebKit, Linux and Eclipse – and analyses how governance, and not licenses, tell the full story of a project’s openness, across transparency, influence and control.

This is a good way to summarize the transformation of data sets as open data to information that narrates an issue within a city. Mark and the City of Philadelphia told a story about crime within the city.

CARY: For Cary, open data a low priority this year | Cary | CaryNews.com | Municipal Open Data | Scoop.it
The Cary Town Council and staff say there isn’t any room in the budget for a proposed tech-oriented initiative, but local programmers are taking up the task themselves.
Jason Hare's insight:

This is a disappointment and not the best approach to opening government data. Before a resolution is passed, the costs and benefits should be understood. Once the resolution is passed, the resolution should be funded. At the very least a public discussion should be held to analyze the costs perceived by Staff and Council before a final decision is made.

All About Open Data: How far we have come with Open Raleigh

All About Open Data: How far we have come with Open Raleigh | Municipal Open Data | Scoop.it

This summer we start on the implementation of the post-beta version of Open Raleigh. We now have a steering committee and buy-in on our road-map is underway. Culturally the city is ready for open data. I wanted to look back on the previous 9 months and see how far we have come in delivering on the City Council's resolution from February 2012.

Jason Hare's insight:
 This month alone (over a 5 day period) we have had 32,000 page views and 300,000 rows of data accessed. How did we achieve a level of engagement like that? This is the story of Open Raleigh.

Let's hope Morrisville can pick up the ball and run with it. I am disappointed the Town of Cary did not back their own open data resolution with funding. Durham, Raleigh, the counties of Wake and Durham are all committed to opening up data for citizens. Morrisville and Cary this is your moment to shine.

Recently there has been a lot of buzz around the release of the White House’s new Open Data Policy released in Memorandum M-13-13. For those of you that may not have read the memorandum in its entirety it directs federal agencies to make all data open and machine readable by default. Obviously there are caveats to that. Agencies can redact data that does not meet disclosure standards regarding security and privacy. The excitement centers around the language of “open by default”.

One of the keys to a successful open data portal is to make it useful for the end user. Citizens and developers should be able to understand data sets without needing a PhD.
