The Economist on Open Data Revolution

In Nov 21, 2015, the Economist features an article on " The open-data revolution has not lived up to expectations. But it is only getting started."  It has obvious benefits with the open government data, but it also argues that "Given the astonishing scale of the data deluge, though, it is reasonable to ask why more has not been achieved. There are four answers to that. First, the data that have been made available are often useless. Second, the data engineers and entrepreneurs who might be able to turn it all into useful, profitable products find it hard to navigate.
