Future data

How we handle data looks likely to play an important role in how we deal with the Grand Challenges facing us in the 21st Century. But how we have used and stored data in the past, both before and during the information age in which we now live, should help us decide on how we can harness technologies to bring Meaning to the web and produce the cities of the future. To a large extent, this depends on how data is controlled, and our freedom to access it.
