Keeping in Sync as We Open Up
Start: 2013-08-29, Publication: 2013-08-30
If the promise of a rich open data ecosystem is collective wisdom greater than any individual data set can provide, and the tools and rules for reliable linkages are well underway, what does this opportunity demand of us -- as campaigners, NGOs, techies and funding groups? What must we do to help bring this crowdsourced picture into clearer focus? And what are the essential elements to making sure that data-driven collaboration will flourish among all groups?... while it's vital for transparency groups and governments to continue opening and disseminating data, we must also create strong channels of ongoing collaboration -- not among systems but among people.
What remains to be seen is how well we as advocates for increased data-sharing and data-driven collaboration can align our own sharing and collaboration. Can we work together regularly, toward measurable ends, and create a functional data commons that uses linked data sets to reveal more than any single group's information can show?
