The Internet is the public space of the modern world, and through it governments now have the opportunity to better understand the needs of citizens. Information becomes more valuable as it is shared, less valuable as it is hoarded. Open data promotes increased civil discourse, improved public welfare, and a more efficient use of taxpayer dollars.

== "Accessible" means: ==
  
By embracing these 8 principles, governments of the world can become more effective, transparent, and relevant to our lives.

Data should be available free-of-charge.

This weekend, [http://public.resource.org/open_government_meeting.html 30 people] came together in Sebastopol
+
to see if we could develop a definition of what
+
we mean by open government data.
+
 
+
One of the prime topics the group discussed
+
was why we believe open government
+
data is such a fundamental concept.
+
Information is the currency of democracy, and becomes more
+
valuable as it shared, less valuable as it hoarded.
+
 
+
With many eyes, all corruption is shallow.  With the
+
Internet, the definition of our public sphere has
+
expanded, and the governments of the world, by
+
endorsing and embracing these 8 principles can
+
become more effective,
+
more transparent, and more relevant to our lives.
