Andrew Stott on the importance of open data (video)

During the Flemish Open Data Day, we had the chance to speak with Andrew Stott on hies views on open data, and their importance for governments. He agreed to do a short video message. In this video he speaks about the role of open data in delivering better information to citizens, building upon this information and letting people participate in government, thus working towards a better service delivery.

 

Andrew Stott led the work to open government data and create "data.gov.uk". His role also included responsibility for increasing the UK Government's capability to use the internet to communicate and collaborate with the public, including the crowd-sourcing of ideas for spending reductions and legal & regulatory reform, and the greater use of social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.
