The Idea of OpenData is not New

Open data is based on the idea that data should be made available freely to everyone, without restrictions on copyright or other controls.
The idea is not new.

“Likely, the first person who suggested making books available to a mostly illiterate population, lending them out, likely not getting them all back and costing money, was probably considered a crazy person.”
