Prof. Runeson took up the topic of open data collaboration in a paper from 2020. Open Data Collaboration is simply the idea of sharing data just like code in some kind of “GitHub”-like worldwide project. Or at least that’s the version I would have in mind, as decentralized local efforts seem very detrimental to such projects because of the necessary network effects needed to make such things work.
I’m sharing this paper mostly because I like that people start exploring this topic. The findings itself in the paper to me seem that:
1) It’s pretty important to get open data collaboration going sometime soon,
2) There are a bunch of unfounded worries about open data collaboration.
The second item is my take on the problems mentioned in the article. Oh yeah, and I think ODC is a really important idea!
