Report: Being Open About Data - Analysis of the UK open data policies and applicability of open data
This paper argues that without engaging data users in open-data policies effectively, little positive development is likely to be achieved in terms of applicability of data. Open data only has value in its use, and at the moment it seems that the most efficient way of facilitating that use is to: a) Provide more education on the data society, b) Further engage those that are already empowered, c) Encourage third-party sites and initiatives.
