Something I published after spending time at the ODI and after living through the latest US Federal Budget crisis:
I feel my comments nicely converged with the way the discussion is drifting concerning the role of the OGP and open government data. I do agree that some governments are using open data as a camouflage to avoid true transparency.

Timely and important.
For open data to promote open government, it needs to operate within a framework of law and regulation that ensures that information is collected, organized and stored and then made public in a timely, accurate and useful form. The information must be more than just what government bodies find useful to release, but what is important for the public to know to ensure that those bodies are accountable.

Open Data needs creative people like you. You don’t have to be a tech genius, you just need an interest in open data and a willingness to get stuck in.
