written by | titticimmino on 29 June, 2014 (09:59)

Mentre in Italia si sta ancora “evangelizzando” tenendo a denti stretti ciò che è in embrione, oppure si legifera, sebbene localmente, in tema di opendata,   dal Regno Unito parte una straordinaria lezione su un cluster di start-up che generano un nuovo business usando l’opendata e cambiando il mondo!

Altro giro, altra corsa per i LOD in Italia. Il Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali ha lanciato dati.culturaitalia.it , sezione di Culturaitalia dedicata ai LOD.

Il progetto pilota dati.culturaitalia.it contiene set di open data aggregati in CulturaItalia e rilasciati dai partner del progetto con licenza “CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication”.

Attualmente dati.culturaitalia.it rende accessibili i dati di: Accademia S. Cecelia, Progetto ArtPast, Digibess, ICCU, Internet Culturale, Michael Italia, Polo Museale Fiorentino, Regione Marche e Anagrafe delle Biblioteche Italiane (i set sono descritti all’interno della pagina fonte dati), oltre al Thesaurus PICO.

Mi chiedo se sia l’ennesima cattedrale del deserto (italico) del LOD.

Open Data Directory platform toward a global directory of OD

Jose M. Alonso, Program Manager Open Data at the World Wide Web Foundation wrote :

We’ve been putting some serious thinking at the Web Foundation on how to improve findability of Open Data-related resources and have built on the idea of facilitating access to those resources for a wide variety of audiences. As a first step towards achieving this goal, we’ve developed a draft of the functional and architectural requirements for the

(ODD) to support a global directory of Open Data references and related information resources, that can range from scientific papers and studies to blog posts and to applications developed on top of Open Data.

It’s still very early stages but, as a first step towards the ODD, we are making public this “Use Cases and Requirements” draft in order to get comments from the wider community on the content of the document itself but also on the overall idea of the ODD. We’ve published it as a Google Document with comments turned on. Suggestions, feedback and comments are very welcome. This is a resource that would serve the community at large and, as such, your input is crucial.

The deadline for submitting comments is: April 19th, 2013.

The ODD should then serve a wide audience of Open Data Stakeholders, including any group that has a direct or indirect interest and could play an active role in an Open Data initiative, from those who conduct, participate in, fund, or manage the initiative to anyone that may otherwise affect or be affected by it.

The mission of the ODD would be to:

  • Provide leadership in the domain
  • Federate existing resources and act as a clearinghouse for them
  • Facilitate replication of successful examples
  • Help understand the challenges and benefits associated to Open Data
  • Provide a best practice itself
