It has been two years since I last wrote substantially on open data. I am pleased to see that, two years later, people continue to reference my writings and to replicate my software, demonstrating that my work continues to be relevant.

Since my writings on open data tapered off a couple years ago, I have been meaning to review my open data writings and summarize my overall conclusions and recommendations related to open data, and now I finally feel ready to do it. Over the past couple years I have gained a greater understanding of the broader significance of my writings. In the present article I review my findings from two years ago and summarize the findings and their relevance to the open data ecosystem.

But this present review is not finished. If you were hoping to read it, email me to remind me to finish it.
