Tim Berners-Lee With an Update on Open Data

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, credited with inventing the World Wide Web, comes back to TED a year after his call for open, structured data with a quick update. Spoiler alert: things are looking good – and they’re only going to get a lot better.



“If people put data on the Web – government data, scientific data, community data – whatever it is, it will be used by other people to do wonderful things in ways they never could have imagined.”
—Tim Berners-Lee, TED, February 2010
