Open data: a conversation
with Joel Gurin

#opendataleadership    #opendatanz

Joel Gurin

Joel is a leading international expert on open data, and author of Open Data Now - a book that has helped define the emerging field of open data.

Open Data is the world's greatest free resource - freely accessible public data that can drive entrepreneurship, business growth, scientific innovation, and programmes for the public good. 

It is one of the most revolutionary developments since the Information Age began.

Join this online conversation between Joel Gurin and moderator Pallas Hupe Cotter via Google Hangout as Joel shares his passion for open data, talks about the benefits and impacts open data can bring, and discusses his strategy for success in the coming era of massive data.

Joel is a Senior Consultant on Open Data to the World Bank. He is President and Founder of the Center for Open Data Enterprise, a Washington-based nonprofit that works to maximize the value of open data as a public resource. Before launching the Center in January 2015, he wrote the book Open Data Now, written to help a general audience understand open data and the opportunities it presents. Joel also led the launch team for the GovLab’s Open Data 500 project and the Open Data Roundtables.

Open Data is open for business - and the opportunities are as big and boundless as the internet itself.
