GOVs OPEN DATA @JENVANDERMEER 1 BE MINE
FIRST CAME THIS
THEN THESE DOTS
IT ISN’T STRATA UNTIL SOMEONE SHOWS YOU THE BABBAGE ENGINE THEN THIS!
WHICH MADE THIS POSSIBLE
AND LET’S NOT FORGET WHAT A BIG DEAL THIS WAS
“Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.” President Barack Obama, quoting Louis Brandeis, on signing the Freedom of Information Act memo to make open and machine readable the default setting for government.
THEN, FIRST TO THE PARTY, NOW BACK AGAIN

SUPPLY SIDE OF OPEN DATA: GPS

OPEN DATA HAS ECONOMIC, NOT JUST SOCIETAL BENEFITS “Making data more “liquid” (open, widely available, and in sharable formats) has the potential to unlock large amounts of economic value, by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of existing processes; making possible new products, services and markets; and creating value for individual consumers and citizens.” “An estimated $3 trillion in annual economic potential.” McKinsey Global Institute Open Data 2013
DEMAND SIDE OF OPEN DATA: INSURANCE
23 OPEN DATA IS A POSITIVE EXTERNALITY CLOSED DATA IS A NEGATIVE EXTERNALITY
BUT CLOSED DATA IS SOMETHING TO GET MAD ABOUT Slower science Fewer medical breakthroughs More money chasing programs that do not work, but we do not know it yet Continued failure for all of us to understand the negative consequences that one actor incurs that we all pay

“To to my mind, the big question is not what Healthbook will look like but whether Apple will make it easy to get our data out of it. If they do, this will be a massive game changer for the quantified self, health, and wellness markets.” Fred Wilson, AVC.com
WHEN WE FINALLY HAVE OPEN DATA, WILL WE SEE EVERYTHING INTERCONNECTED?
“He had shown her all the workings of his soul, mistaking this for love.” = EM Forster, The Longest Journey
