In my experience, doing this for 3 years now.

You will have to continually explain these 101 concepts.

What is API?  What is Data?  What is Open?  What is JSON? What is Github?

Why Open?  What is Personal Data?

The best defense is constantly have prepared material to help educate

Always be ready for it.  I don't think those types of questions will ever
go away.

I don't have any concrete examples you can use currently, but will publish
when I do.
