#Opendata: Digital-Era Governance Thoroughbred or New Public Management Trojan Horse? by Justin Longo

#Opendata: Digital-Era Governance Thoroughbred or New Public Management Trojan Horse? by Justin Longo | OpenGov and Open Data | Scoop.it

TThe open data movement - in which advocates have called for governments to provide open, easy-to-use and largely free-of-charge access to public data - has generated significant momentum in a short period of time. I review the benefits - to both governments and the public - that many open data advocates agree are achievable from making digitized government data more open. Following this, I focus on one of these purported benefits and propose an alternative interpretation that identifies a potential downside to open data as currently framed: that an alternative reading of some elements of the open data advocacy coalition originate in the New Public Management reform agenda and seek to revive it.

EU: LobbyPlag – Who is really writing the law? | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog

EU: LobbyPlag – Who is really writing the law? | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog | OpenGov and Open Data | Scoop.it

Sometimes, the band continues to play because the audience is enjoying the music so much. This is pretty much what happened to Lobbyplag. Our plan was to drive home a single point that outraged us:

 

Some Members of the European Parliament were taking law proposals verbatim from lobbyists and trying to slip them into the upcoming EU privacy law. They actually copy-and-pasted texts provided by the likes of Amazon, Google, Facebook or some banking industry body.

 

The fact itself was Max Schrems’ discovery. Max is a lawyer, and he sought the help of Richard Gutjahr and the data journalists and developers from OpenDataCity – to present his evidence to the public in form of a website called Lobbyplag. The name evokes memories of past projects where people had hunted down plagiarism in the doctoral theses of German politicians.
