I do hope you are right, and that we get there, but I worry that the government know what they are doing, I really do.

By: David Alexander Fri, 22 Jul 2011 16:25:05 +0000 Thank you for so clearly summarising the potential for personal data, and the challenge of poorly thought through attempts to further extend the excellent work of Open Data. The decisions made now will if we get them right as a country provide a beacon for the next stage of evolution of our society and its approach to the empowerment of the individual to participate fully with government, organisations and each other in a equitable manner by recognising their human rights and the implementation of those to extend into the digital realm in a means and manner that allows for a new economy to grow, costs to be saved and integrity to be built into the system. A balanced system is where risk is managed by the appropriate individual, who gets to give permission and make choices about how their data is used in what form and for how long. Choice with the individual means full engagement in society and responsibility for that engagement.

Let’s ensure we demand the very best thinking and highest levels of integrity from those that can make change happen and lets respect and include the individual in this debate as a full participant with opinions and rights that should be respected.
