Great article. The amount of data currently hidden from public view represents a economic stimulus package of its own if it can be made available.

re: Unlocking Big Government Data: Whose Job Is It?
This! Terrific article!

The idea of private enterprise learning to leverage big data from government in new and innovative ways seems like a potential budding industry to me. The level of science, research and information/data that is freely available from the government if you just know where to get it could be used to produce services on the same level as Google Maps.

But we'd never get those services and products if we waited on government to provide it. Jonathan Feldman is right.
