Event description


In the digital age, who owns information controls our future. Rufus Pollock offers a vision of breaking today’s concentration of wealth and power – the exclusive ownership of digital information – through new rules that would democratize the information economy. Welcome to the Open Revolution, a call to arms for all digital non-private information to be open – accessible; free for everyone to use, build on, and share; and where creators and innovators are fairly recognized and incentivized.

What would it mean for the transparency movement, and for development practice more broadly? How do we change the rules? What are the advantages, challenges, and limits in implementing the Open model? #OpenRevolution
