What I discovered in Brasilia
I’m seeing representations from all kind of governments, ones more experienced, others willing to learn, and from the three different continents. Private sector is also represented by startups as well as big companies, realizing there’s here a good opportinity to go.
I really liked some speeches happening around. I would like to mention specially two. First, the Spanish State Secretary, Jose Luis Ayllon was a firmly believer of using open government and open data as a driver to boosting economic crisis based reforms Spain and other countries are currently facing.
Second, Tim Kelsey just mentioned three main ideas about how is the vision of uk government in prioritizing the release of public open data:
- Data to improve quality of public services
- Giving people their own data
- Data that empower private companies
