Sir Tim Berners-Lee speaks at TED2010 about the value of open data.

I recently heard a talk by David Weinberger, and one of the take-away comments from that speech for me was that the world is “too big to know.” We use filters to select the pieces of data we want or need, but that assumes that the data is available to be filtered. Sir Berners-Lee’s comments very powerfully demonstrates the need to have data available to be filtered.
