The Open Data Song

Not to mention the new short film, “Open.” Great great stuff. Script and lyrics especially. My favorite from the song?

You may say a pdf is good enough

If they don’t like it well that’s just tough

But that’s not open

That data’s frozen

Can’t boil that ocean

Here’s a notion

Make it free


And available

The Film (about seven minutes)

The Open Data Song (acoustic)
