> Long time reader, first time writer. I recently had a chat with a government official and we were talking government data and all the benefits. The official said that they seem to be hearing a lot about all the benefits but don't have access to practical examples of how releasing government data has benefited different departments. Examples that they could use to as references to help persuade different people to get involved. I mentioned transportation data examples but they have a lot of those examples.
