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
The Film (about seven minutes)
The Open Data Song (acoustic)
The Open Data Song (electric)
