Data should be used -- for research, scholarship, teaching, making ridiculous cat/dog-related memes, whatever. Nothing facilitates use like access and nothing means access like open access. Ergo, open data. My interest in open data is to promote and encourage use of web archives, digital collections, and born-digital archival materials in general.
Work at Internet Archive. Interests = web archiving, digital preservation, digital library/archive/museum stuff, open access, et cetera.
