  • BUT, working in an open data initialtive can be scary too when time comes, and there are several issues in several categories that we need to deal with if we are to have a great project, let us consider that each issue is a kid, that witll trick or treat us in the project, and that if we are not ready, they will play tricks on us.Working in a open data project is like halloween, you must know that the kids will come and tick or traet you, and you must be prepared with candies (solutions), and that possibly, each kid will ask for a different kind of candie, actually, for sure they will
  • Open Nuts! Open Government Data activities in Austria GregorEibl*, Brigitte Lutz** How does opening government data compare to opening nuts? Opening government data can be compared well with the act of opening a nut. The kernel of the walnut for example, which is protected by the hard shell and is a valuable food for animals, is a calorie-rich winter food supply for birds, squirrels and other rodents. Let’s assume that government data is a rich supply for third parties (businesses, NGOs, citizens, universities, other government agencies…), this information resource is often protected well from third parties. Making this data available and easy to use is one of the core claims in the debate of open government. You will see later in this reflection that the principles of open government data all have the aim to make these valuable information resources easily available. Just like cracking a nut to access the rich fruit. In this reflection we will shortly talk about the hard shell, which the open government data movement will have to crack. First the activities, which shows what Austria has done so far to crack the shell and remove the barriers and finally the first fruits, which became available through the efforts of opening the nut itself. 1. The Hard Shell of Open Government Data Figure 1 depicts some barriers encountered during the implementation of opening government data in Austrian public administrations. Only through the opening process of government data, data islands were identified, which had to be integrated and harmonized. Other data sources are consciously kept secret, which explains the resistance of some data owners. Arguments were raised, that opening can have unpredictable results (overwhelming feedback, new requirements,…) about the quality of data or new technical features.On the other hand administrations have to deal with missing resources, like lower budgets in the time of financial crisis, additional distribution cost with the open data portals and missing human resources capable of handling the new tasks. Raw data eliminates the possibility to publish only “censored” and non-critical data and information. Some administrations have concerns to publish their data in a quality that was sufficient for internal purposes, but not enough for the broad public audience.
