Hmmmm ... I wonder what Mr. Gus Hunt thought of my suggestion to make the CIA World Factbook Open Data and not just Public Domain ...




Late Breaking Added Bonus:  If you ever have the Supreme Court quizzing you about "Limiting Principles" you can just say "lex parsimoniae.  The truth is only as simple as we can make it."  Heaven forbid this become a best practice.

Hi all--


Thought you might be interested in the Big Data webinar tomorrow from the White House.  "Researchers in a growing number of fields are generating extremely large and complicated data sets, commonly referred to as “big data.” A wealth of information may be found within these sets, with enormous potential to shed light on some of the toughest and most pressing challenges facing the nation. To capitalize on this unprecedented opportunity—to extract insights, discover new patterns and make new connections across disciplines—we need better tools to access, store, search, visualize, and analyze these data."


Thursday, March 28 from 2-3:30 pm EST (see attached for details)
