歲月的容顏: 政府與民間對open data的認知落差

歲月的容顏: 政府與民間對open data的認知落差 | OpenData.tw | Scoop.it

昨天那一場其實想說的很多,真的說出來的可能只有想說的一半。同時會場上提出的許多問題,也激發出更多想像。例如,台北市政府的組長提到辦 app 競賽後,很多計畫其實都不會持續更新。也就是只是做來給比賽用。CK提到,這要看競賽到底為何而辦?我則是認為,如果真的仔細去看那些比賽得獎的 app,會發現很多都只是「好玩」的小品。例如法國國鐵辦的競賽,第一名是有人寫出從某個車站到另一個車站,行走可消耗多少熱量。我是不太清楚這樣的小品會有多少人想使用。而北市府組長提到一個關於 1999 的app,因為後續無人經營,同時很多人誤以為這是北市府開發的,而造成很多困擾。

那我會想問,如果把這些真的有人用,同時很受歡迎的 app 但是沒人願意繼續開發和 maintain 的,開放 open source 出來呢?或是由北市府成立一個市府 open source 的單位(還可對內推廣 open source 軟體的使用!)讓這些受到市場篩選,有「經濟價值」的 app 可繼續存活並開放出來呢? 

很多事情不管是看法作法,民間和政府都會不同。但,這就是為什麼要談 open data,為什麼要談「開放」。

作者:張維志 不知道大家是否有這樣的感覺,在提到 Open Data 時,常常會跟雲端啦,跟資料加值啦,跟 app 啦這些東西綁在一起說。雖然我們都知道 Open Data 當然不是在說這些,不過這些「玩意」的確有時會和 Open Data 的使用等有一定的關係… 下面這是一個關於使用 Open Data 來開發一個能解決市民每日生活上實際會遇到的問題的 app 競賽。優勝者可以在今年於西班牙巴塞隆納舉辦的「2012 智慧城市展」中展是他們的作品。最後優勝者更可獲得3000歐元的獎賞!...

台電與開放資料

台電與開放資料 | OpenData.tw | Scoop.it
台電,有種你就開放資料吧! 姑且不論敏感的台電財務報表或是電廠安全報告,而僅就最基本、比較沒有爭議性的用電資料來說好了,若能以「開放資料」(open data) 的方式定期公布,先由各界人士(例如產業、政策智庫和環保團體)自行針對資料進行分析和詮釋之後,再舉辦公聽會彙整多元觀點… 一顆按鈕:讓「開放資料」等於「加值應用」加上「雲端運算」 因此,對於政府從去年開始逐步加溫,而今年可能要開始砸大錢辦活動推動 [open data + government apps + cloud computing]...
