Tim Berners-Lee on open data

Tim Berners-Lee‘s TEDTalk on open data was Youtubed this week. 6 minutes worth watching. He’s the man known for inventing the dubilya-dubilya-dubilya.

I made a similar argument to the one made in the first three minutes of the clip at Ignite Dublin on Thursday. In my tirade waffle talk I encouraged people to submit FOI requests and publish them online no matter the perceived importance of the contents due to the potential contexts through which those official documents could be viewed at a future date. Of course my talk was poorly constructed and laden with tangents by comparison to the one below, but let’s not dwell on that…

One thought on “Tim Berners-Lee on open data”

  1. Nice video. I had to do an essay on the semantic web and open data for college recently. This really ties is all together and shows the potential. Cheers for uploading it.
