Greetings! \\//_

Welcome to the Ministry of Data. As you can guess, this blog is about data. Not Data, although the character is certainly worth blogging about.

This website and this blog are dedicated to open data and digital/e-/open government. I firmly believe that the two are inextricably linked and are a necessary and inevitable step in a society’s and country’s evolution and progress.

I will focus mainly on Canada, the province of Ontario, the City of Mississauga, the City of Toronto, as well as India, and the USA. Noteworthy examples will also be blogged about and discussed. As a public policy/ administration and political science graduate, I have a keen interest in government. Open data and e-government are natural evolution of the government in advanced countries like Canada. As with everything, there is a right way of doing things, and a half-baked way. With my blog posts, I hope to highlight them and give my input.

The Open Data and Open / e-/ digital Government presence in Mississauga is rather small. (If I am wrong, please let me know and I will be happy to be proven wrong) Through this website and blog, I hope to highlight them, bring them together, and increase the size of these communities.

Please feel free to get in touch!

Data: the invisible frontier.

These are the blog posts of an ordinary Canadian.

My (hopefully) multi-year mission: to explore (strange and new) data, to seek out new meaning and understanding of data, to boldly go where this one has not gone before.
