What is your interest in Open Data?

There's more interesting things to be done with data than one organization can possibly hire enough people to do, so it just makes economic sense for the data companies collect to be open. When it comes to government-related or taxpayer funded data, it's an obligation to make the data open to ensure the public gets the expected return on their investment, or just to promote transparency and openness in government.

Introduction

I'm the Head of Academic Outreach for Mendeley and have been a supporter of open access and open data for many years.
