The Benefits of Open Data – Evidence from Economic Research | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog

The Benefits of Open Data – Evidence from Economic Research | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog | ICT for development | Scoop.it

"Looking back on the Open Knowledge Festival 2012 in September, there’s an impression that openness is everywhere: There are working groups on Open Science and Open Linguistics, topic streams on Gender and Diversity in Openness, and events like Open Prom and Open Sauna. Open Knowledge and Open Data, it seems, are omnipresent.

 

Looking beyond the Open Knowledge community, however, the situation is very different. In Economics, for example, not many know what “open data”, “open access” or “Open Economics” exactly mean. Indeed, not many even care. A common reaction is: “Yes, it sounds interesting and important, but does it really matter? And why should I care about it?”"
