Public data

People interested in the techie side of open government data should read this post from Emma Mulqueeny.

I’ve long thought that data projects like that shouldn’t be considered successful until some 15 year old girl uses the data/services to make a tangible improvement to her and her community, that would otherwise not have happened.

When every 14 year old knows that they can do that too, then it’ll be a success forever.
