Saturday December 4th is International Open Data Day
International Open Data Day is a gathering of citizens in cities
around the world to write applications using open public data to show
support for and encourage the adoption of open data policies by the
world’s local, regional and national governments.
Open Data policies can increase government transparency, spur digital
enterprise and improve civic participation.
