I am pleased to announce that a recent book chapter, co-authored with co-op student Christine Varga, has recently been published in the edited volume "The Future of Open Data", edited by Teresa Scassa and Pamela Robinson (University of Ottawa Press). Our chapter investigates the barriers and challenges to the use of open data by private sector companies, including start-ups in the Waterloo/Kitchener-Toronto tech corridor. I am grateful to SSHRC and the Geothink Partnership Grant for providing funding for this work. I am also pleased that this work is available as a pdf for free. Please check out all the excellent chapters.
