CC for Data Producers: What Does It Mean to Make Data Usable?

Feedback form is now closed.
How might we help data* producers and providers** better share and reuse each others data legally, technically, and openly… in order to enable collaborative innovation and societal progress?

Creative Commons will report on progress made to answer these questions as part of its usability initiative, specifically findings from expert and group interviews with users and creators of open data. Session participants will participate in shaping the design phase, where we will be identifying opportunities for better design of how CC licenses are represented on the web, discussing questions such as:

  • What influence does policy have on data sharing?
  • How is access important to you?
  • If you had a magic wand, what would you create and why would that make people’s lives better?

Data is a new frontier for CC. What does the ecosystem look like? What should we be thinking about? Who should we talk to?

 * Definition for session purposes: “Data is a set of values of qualitative or quantitative variables used to interpret the world.”
** Here we’re focusing on researchers and their data -- policies requiring open data. This is our primary interest, but don’t want to limit discussion to this depending on who is in the room.
