A Two-Way Pipeline for Governance: Opening Up the Data Government Holds About the Companies it Regulates

This week’s Open Up? 2014 conference, hosted by the Omidyar Network, convened a diverse group of “open data activists, government officials, private sector leaders, technologists, journalists, and other civil society leaders” to “explore the intersections and tensions around openness and privacy.” In addition to the live element of the conference – you can find the agenda here – Open Up?’s blog is providing ongoing insights into the subject from participants.

Yesterday, the Open Up blog featured a post from GovLab executive director Beth Simone Noveck and TABridge editor Jed Miller titled, “A Two-Way Pipeline for Governance: Opening Up the Data Government Holds About the Companies it Regulates.” The post focuses on four key priorities for opening up data-driven policymaking:
  • Knowing what we have
  • Making data comparable
  • Making open data two-way
  • Fostering new models of trust
