Sanjay Pradhan: How open data is changing international aid - TED Video

One of Mr. Pradhan's major points is that making information public is not enough. It must be made available in ways which are meaningful. Then and only then can things begin to change for the better. The relatively new trend toward developing nations looking to each other for models of success rather than to the North is a significant shift in thought and practice regarding how people might be lifted out of poverty. This is an important presentation, one which needs to be heard by anyone interested in helping to make the developing world a better place to live.
