The last week has seen big moves in the opening up of Government data, with the release today of the COINS database of government spending. Since it was released at 9.30 this morning there has been buzz of activity trying to clean the raw data up into usable forms (see the Open Knowledge Foundatio n and Guardian interfaces to exploring the COINS data ) and I think it’s certainly fair to say that the race to create ways to explore the data has generated some impressive results – leading to tools beyond what may have been created by an internal government process to present the same data in user-friendly forms. ...
or other mechanisms of control. It has a similar ethos to a number of other "Open" movements and communities such as open source and open access . However these are not logically linked and many combinations of practice are found. The practice and ideology itself is well established (for example in the Mertonian tradition of science ) but the term "open data" itself is recent. Much of the emphasis in this entry is on data from scientific research and from the data-driven web. In some cases open data may be considered as more properly Open Metadata and there is not yet a consistent formalisation. This article ...
Why Mullenweg Should Stop Trolling Pearson Over the GPL | Joel ...
between Chris Pearson and Matt Mullenweg. I, like just about everybody else making a comment on the issue, am not a lawyer. I’m not going to pretend to be one either by trying to interpret the GPL. I’ll leave that to the courts. If you’ve been on Twitter, you’ve probably heard this statement several times over today. It’s an absurd and stupid thing to say. The GPL is a license, nothing more and nothing less. The GPL-licensed, open source applications that thrive and succeed don’t do so because of their choice in license. They succeed because the developers believe in free collaboration and ... market research, surveys and trends
The Tyee — Vancouver City Hall's Open Data Experiment
searched for the notice that his house was to be demolished to make way for a new bypass, he eventually found it on the bottom of a locked filing cabinet in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying, 'Beware of the Leopard.' Governments, large and small, generate vast amounts of information. Finding the relevant piece of information in a timely fashion is a challenge, and that's assuming that the government has decided to share it with the public at all. Over the past year, Vancouver's city government has launched a program to make large amounts of information to the public. These data sets, posted ... market research, surveys and trends

GPL declines as open source moves to the Web | The Open Road ...
While GPLv3 has seen a 400-percent increase in adoption, and though the GPL and its variants still claim over 65 percent of all open-source projects, Black Duck reports a 5 percent decline in GPL adoption. This drop makes sense, given the GPL's decreasing relevance to the modern world of network-delivered software and the increasing value of data over software. ZDNet's Dana Blankenhorn points out that there are no clear replacements arising for the GPL, and he's right. But I'm not sure that's the point. Peter Vescuso, executive vice president of marketing and business development at Black Duck Software, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Choosing a directory structure
Just planning to set up a directory of my own and have read that the DMOZ catagory structure is copyrighted - not referring to the actual content here - I'm talking about the basic folder structure of catagories within catagories. This has me confused - because just about every directory out there seems to follow the DMOZ structure (not talking about DMOZ clones, which obviously do) - so is it legal or not? Common sense would say that organising things in the same way as DMOZ would make it easier for users - because they know what catagories to list their site in - but I don't want to open myself up to copyright ...
