Discussion: What can open data do for MN?
The Minneapolis City Council recently passed an open data policy that opens the door for private citizens to access the city’s more than 450 government databases. This new policy both illustrates a shift in culture as well as expectations.
City Council Member Andrew Johnson has been a proponent of open data, as he told MinnPost: “The old models, the old way of doing things are no longer acceptable to a lot of folks."
What are the benefits of open data and how can it impact economic development?
What potential uses of open data are you most excited about?
