Dare Obasanjo's post about the issue of Open Data (or Open Data
Access), indicates that the "Open Data" issue is
gradually beginning to resonate across a broader audience.
From my perspective on things I prefer to align my articulation
of the changes that are occurring across our industry (courtesy of
the Internet Inflection) to the MVC
Re. the Web Versions (or Dimensions of Interaction):
The same applies to evolution of Openness:
In the (C)ontroller realm where the focal point is Application
Logic, data access issues aren't obvious (*I recall my battles with
Richard Stallman re. the appropriate Open Source License variant
for iODBC during the embryonic years of database and data
access technology on Linux*). Data is an enigma in this realm,
unfortunately. This implies that "Data Lock-in" occurs
deliberately, but in most cases, inadvertently when we make
Application Logic the focal point of everything. Another example is
Web 2.0 in which the norm (unfortunately) is to suck in your data,
and then refuse to give you complete ownership over how it is used
(including the fact that you may want to share it elsewhere).

This time the service made zero such statements, sorry.
