Why make our data available?
The Guardian are spearheading a campaign to lobby government-funded and approved organisations to make their data freely available to the public, given that it is paid for by the taxpayer. Free our Data argue that this restricts innovation, and artificially restricts the number and variety of organisations that can offer services based on that most useful data- which our taxes have helped to collect. Michael Cross give an overview of their work to date.
