New Year Reset

by Keith McDonald
It's not precisely true that you reset all your "gauges" to zero at the start of a new year. Some things have to stick around and carry on as a measurement (we all get a little older every day for example) but the analogy works pretty well all the same. 

Clearly you can start anew, gear up, make the push, get going again, etc, etc as January hits. We're doing that now!  

new year resolution scroll with #1 as more DATA eh?
Have you hit "Reset" yet?
Late last year, I attended a seminar that talked about making "today better than yesterday and tomorrow better than today". When it comes to Open Data, I think that is a real possibility.

More DATA eh? 
But, I guess what I'm really saying, is it's not the data that gets reset, it's the person. In 2012, we have an opportunity to move further along the chain in how we (the City) delivers data and how users benefit and/or deal with the data. 

Tell us what you think about where we are and where we should be going. Any New Year resolutions you might want to share around Open Data? Now is a great time to let us know what you are thinking.
