Open Data Workshop 2007
The Open Data Workshop 2007 took place yesterday in New York City. The gathering was organized by AttentionTrust and sponsored by Reuters. The workshop brought together over sixty influencers from startups, web giants, financial firms, venture capitalists and journalists interested in the attention space. It was a very refreshing, open and candid dialog about the different issues and faces of open data.
Open Data in the context of the workshop referred to three different things:
- A public API for a service;
- Release of anonymous consumer information for research;
- The user’s explicit and implicit attention information.
