Proprietary Data: Intel Outside?

The Infectious Greed blog (as noted on Radar.Oreilly.com) tackles the proprietary data issue. The writer offers that Tim O’Reilly’s take that “data is the Intel inside of Web 2.0” should be flipped. Data should be “Intel outside.” He goes on to offer that like the Energy Star stickers that note environmentally friendly appliances, we need Data Star stickers noting that vendors allows data to be mixed and matched with other data. It’s an interesting idea to ponder in our world of so much proprietary geospatial data.
