Key perspectives on open data research: Boston workshop

As part of the Open Data Research network projects I’m involved in I had the pleasure of participating in a workshop at Harvard a few weeks back, where Felipe Heusser had brought together a stellar panel involving Archon Fung, David Eaves, Susan Crawford and Yochai Benkler to explore key perspectives on open data research.

Their contributions, and the discussion from the floor, highlighted the need to think deeply and critically about how open data is being used, and what is driving the supply of data. The session was recorded on the rooms built in AV-system, and the Berkman Centre for Internet and Society team have kindly put together a video with all the slides, as well as making it available as a PodCast. The recording is embedded below, and the audio only is on SoundCloud here.
