The best way to get value from data is to give it away

The announcement contained some very strong language in support of open data. Open data is the new gold, the fertile soil out of which a new generation of applications and services will grow. In a networked age, we all depend on data, and opening it up is the best way to realise its value, to maximise its potential.

I am proud to present an Open Data package that can drastically increase possibilities for web entrepreneurs; opportunities of businesses, journalists, academics and citizens, to generate new/rich content.

2011 TimesOpen: Hack Day demos

NYT Developer: Geographic API

The Geographic API extends the Semantic API, using a linked data approach to enhance location concepts used in The New York Times’ controlled vocabulary and data resources which combine them with the GeoNames database, an authoritative and free to use database of global geographical places, names and features.

NYT Developer: Semantic API

The Semantic API complements the Articles API. With the Semantic API, you get access to the long list of people, places, organizations and other locations, entities and descriptors that make up the controlled vocabulary used as metadata by The New York Times.

Open Data Institute to be built

Having scrapped the Institute of Web Science promised by Gordon Brown, government gives Berners-Lee and Shadbolt an open data research centre.

The government will announce a number of open data initiatives tomorrow, including a new Open Data Institute near ‘Silicon Roundabout’.

The Open Data Institute will “innovate, exploit and research open data opportunities with business and academia”, chancellor George Osborne will announce tomorrow.

Over 80 developers visited the Times Building on Saturday for TimesOpen: Hack Day. We debuted three APIs at Hack Day: Events, Semantic and Geo. Semantic and Geo are pioneering applications that use linked data. Linked data takes the controlled vocabulary that The Times uses to classify its content and extends it to a larger world of available information in data resources like Google’s Freebase, DBpedia and GeoNames.
