Nigel Shadbolt, University of Southampton

Government data is powerful, plentiful, and relevant to citizens' concerns. Making it open supports transparency, crowdsourcing data enhancement, and innovative service development. The authors review the state of linked open government data, in the context of the potential for the publishing organizations and the Linked Data Web itself, as well as the administrative and political issues raised.
