Open Data is already political [Information filters are everywhere]

We all get thousands information messages each day. Information consists of data that is filtered before it is sent out to us by someone. Our brain then filters this information using our values ​​and opinions. Nothing is perfect.

The idea behind Open Data is that “certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish“.

“If data is going to be open. You better make sure which data that is being collected.”

“If you are going to controlling the conversion you better make sure you control the datasets”

“Open data is already political” — David Eaves

However you put it. It is very hard to remove politics or filters from Data and Information.

See David Eaves and Jennifer Pahlka talk about it from Social Media Week below.
