With increasing scrutiny on government entities (especially here in Illinois), constituents are demanding their politicians be transparent across all aspects of governing and operations. As a result, there’s been a rapid growth in the field of open data, which is not only helpful to constituents, but also to the political and investigative news media as well. But just how reliable is open data? Can reporters trust it at face value? Hear from the founders of DataMade (which built IllinoisSunshine.org with the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform) and Aldertrack (which tracks the activity and data related to happening of Chicago’s City Council), and hear from Sun-Times reporter Dan Mihalopolous about how he uses that data in his reporting.
Time of this event is subject to change.
