  2. 2. Who we are? ● We are a global network using advocacy and technology to open up knowledge and see it used to empower citizens and organizations to drive positive change. ● We build tools and communities to create, use and share open knowledge - content and data that everyone can use, share and build on. ● We believe that by creating an open knowledge commons and developing tools and communities around this, we can make a significant contribution to improving governance, research and the economy.

Open Data Open data involves ● the proactive disclosure of information; ● the Internet being the primary medium for such disclosure; ● information being made available for access and for reuse free of charge and; ● information being made available in a machine-readable format to enable computer-based reuse.
  11. 11. Why Open Data? ● Innovation, Efficiency and Transparency ● The Many Mind Principle - The best thing to do with your data will be thought of by someone else. ● Fixing is Faster with Open Data - To many eyes all bugs are shallow.
