L’ouverture des données publiques, et après. Par Daniel Kaplan le 09/11/10 | 30 commentaires | 7,675 lectures | Impression Tous ceux qui, comme nous dans le cadre du programme Réutilisation des données publiques de la Fondation internet nouvelle génération, s’engagent en faveur de l’ouverture et de la réutilisation des données publiques, en espèrent des résultats féconds en termes de qualité de vie, de cohésion sociale, d’innovation et de croissance.

L’ouverture des données publiques, et après

Mais les choses pourraient se passer tout autrement. Nous devons commencer à penser aux conséquences de l’ouverture des données, pour nous assurer qu’elles soient majoritairement positives. Ceux qui militent en faveur de l’ouverture des données publiques (ou non, d’ailleurs) et de leur réutilisation par les citoyens, les chercheurs et les entrepreneurs, espèrent qu’il en sortira quelque chose de bon.

Commençons donc à penser aux conséquences. Big Data : les progrès de l’analyse des données. Charting the success of open data initiatives. Marcus Ebner: “In a globalized science world it can be very tiring if you don’t speak the same ‘language’ or can’t read someone else´s data.” - PoolParty. Cannibalize Business Development by Popularizing your API - Shaival Shah's Blog. The great fad of the last several years is self-serve and the ability to scale the distribution and access to your technology, product, service or data. The Twitter API, Facebook Connect, Yelp API for reviews, Youtube Embed codes, Google Maps API, you name it. And everyone knows the APIs out of the media darling’s Foursquare, Zoho and Dropbox. Travel industry gatekeepers should open their APIs to breed innovation.

Travel industry gatekeepers should open their APIs to breed innovation

Jeff Lawson, CEO of app software firm Twilio, gave a great talk at last week’s Gluecon conference about enabling so-called “DOers” in large organizations. His primary thesis is that easy-to-use, self-service APIs that are clearly documented, clearly priced and allow instant sign-up enable innovation actually work and benefit industries. By this standard, is the travel industry focused on enabling innovation? Not really. There are dozens of APIs and data feeds offered by large and small travel organizations sitting on mountains of data, but many of these APIs share significant problems. The most common are: No self-service signup — must talk to a sales/BD personData constraints — only serving part of a larger dataset.

All of the above represents myopic thinking and severely limits innovation. What needs to happen? The practical case for open, easily accessible APIs is clear. 1. This should be the easiest issue to solve. 2. Personal data is the future, but does anybody care? Like most people, I tend to surround myself with like-minded folks.

Personal data is the future, but does anybody care?

Most of my dinner party conversations turn into rousing debates on the future of web standards, or which company will unlock the true power of personal data on the web, or how can we mark our bits with emotional cues to make our web experiences more human. That sort of thing. Who Is More Trust-Worthy with Our Data: The Government or Big Companies? (TCTV) We invited Reid Hoffman and Tim O’Reilly — two of the biggest thinkers in the Valley– into the studio to talk about what Hoffman calls “Web 3.0.”

He argues the next wave isn’t as simple as MOBILE! As he first discussed at SXSW, it’s about companies running on any platform or in the real world using the last few decades of data being gathered on our virtual and actual selves to build stunningly innovative new products and services. In this segment, we talk about the obviously frightening implications of that and whether we should fear government or business more. Tomorrow, we’ll focus on the good of the trend, including a segment on the business opportunities in Web 3.0 and one on some way-out-there potential new applications that could change our lives.
