Agreed! Great stuff :)

I'd also like to add that we need to be _so_ careful about the environmental as well as social costs of data itself (very high!). It's not a panacea and can indeed be incredibly damaging.

It's also vital that the private sector, academic / research institutions etc _contribute_ data, insights etc back into the #opendata and #shareddata ecosystems.

And finally, I don't believe it's just about bringing efficiencies to the private sector, but about bringing _effectiveness_ to all sectors. Efficiency can be a tremendously dangerous thing on which to focus, and the private sector isn't the only out out there, let alone the most important :)

[A great discussion of this is https://opendatapolicylab.org/third-wave-of-open-data/.]
