It’s Open Data Day! But what is ‘open data’ and why should we care?

"The Open Data 500 study is conducted by the GovLab at New York University with funding from the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation. The GovLab works to improve people’s lives by changing how we govern, using technology-enabled solutions and a collaborative, networked approach. As part of its mission, the GovLab studies how institutions can publish the data they collect as open data so that businesses, organizations, and citizens can analyze and use this information."
