Eaves.ca Blogging Moment #2 (2009 Edition): The Three Laws of Open Data go Global

Back in 2007 I published a list of top ten blogging moments – times I felt blogging resulted in something fun or interesting. I got numerous notes from friends who found it fun to read (though some were not fans) so I’m giving it another go. Even without these moments it has been rewarding, but it is nice to reflect on them to understand why spending so many hours, often late at night, trying to post 4 times a week can give you something back that no paycheck can offer.

Also nice: Tim O’Reilly – tech guru, publisher and open government champion – mentions it during his GTEC keynote in Ottawa.

Best yet, after putting out the request on twitter several volunteers from around the world translate the 3 laws into seven languages! (German, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch, Spanish and Catalan)

    Hurray again for the internet!
