The following guest post is by Zuzana Wienk, from the Slovakian watchdog the Fair Play Alliance . She is also a member of the Open Knowledge Foundation’s Working Group on Open Government Data When we started to build a data catalogue of all possible flows of public finances to the private sphere in 2003, we had no idea it would be a perfect fit with the open data movement’s efforts. As former journalists, we simply saw the great advantage of having all kinds of public data (freely accessible thanks to the freedom of information act) brought together in a searchable database format. After years of FOIA requests and litigation, Fair-Play Alliance now offers the most comprehensive catalogue in Slovakia.

Mike Linksvayer, March 31st, 2010 The Netherlands government has launched Rijksoverheid.nl , a new website that all Dutch ministries will migrate to (English; other links in this post are Dutch). Creative Commons Netherlands notes that the site’s copyright policy signals a seriousness about open sharing of public sector information — its default is to remove all copyright restrictions with the CC0 public domain waiver . Rijksoverheid.nl not only signals a true commitment to openness but also sets a strong example for other governments. Congratulations!
