I’m interested in how commonly available technology and the power of crowds can help make the world a better place. Particular areas of interest are data sharing and the power of crowds:
- Public Data & Open Data
- The benefits (and risks) to society and how to measure these.
- Balancing the need for privacy and security against the need for accessibility.
- Overcoming challenges of legacy IT systems and legislation.
- Incentivising agencies and organisations to share their data.
- Empowering intermediaries to add value to public data.
- Data Strategy, Governance and Risk Management.
- Data as an Asset – How does it differ to other asset classes. Implications for governance, risk management, accounting standards, mergers and acquisitions.
- The power of crowds and technology to solve public policy problems
- Citizen Science – how it can be leveraged to solve public problems.
- Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap and other mass collaboration platforms.
- Incentives and rewards – why do so many people volunteer time to support these?
- How can these platforms be leveraged to help solve public policy problems?
