Raw data now

Last month Tim Berners-Lee, one of the leading pioneers in everything Internet, gave a great talk about the next stages of the Web, all centered on data. Now it’s available at 

His main points were:

  • The first phase of the Web was publishing and sharing information and content, now we will start publishing and sharing data.
  •  Transparency is just the first step of unlocking data and reframing its usage. But transparency by itself is not enough to change the dynamics of how we use data in a meaningful way.
  • Putting linked data on the web is a critical aspect of the next stage of the web. Data becomes meaningful through its relationships to other data, by itself in isolation it is close to meaningless.
  • Sharing raw data is more important than waiting to finalize a beautiful presentation layer for data. Too many companies and government institutions wait too long to publish their data because they have not yet finalized the last stages of visualizing and interpreting the raw data. Berners-Lee told the crowd to repeat the slogan: “Raw data now!”

 Once again has shown to be a place for finding great presentations.
