Tim Berners-Lee on imperfect data

“Sometimes organisations have a misplaced feeling that they don’t want their name to be attached to data that is out there unless it’s perfect. Data is never perfect. There are always errors. If someone has a dataset on their machine in their office and they are using it to make decisions, they should release it and just be honest about the situation.”

– Tim Berners-Lee, in an interview with Wired.
