One thought on “Open Data Is Not Open for Business

  1. As a retired professionnal official statistician I agree with that. I would add that Open data propagandits should not ask for openning of every dataset, but only for those that properly fit for a clearly spelled range of purposes. Most of the time the datasets fit an initial internal purpose and satisfy those who created and manage it and rarely more, specially in developing countries. Upgrading the quality so as to grant wider access and use is often very costly.
