Congratulations to Mayor Richard Berry and the City of Albuquerque on their launch of ABQ Data today.  Mayor Berry’s administration has been a leader in transparent government, but their announcement at UNM today takes a healthy step forward in Open Government, releasing multiple data sets at their new site, asking for public data on the kinds of apps and services we’d most like to see developed, and paving the way for a $30K App Competition for applications using that data to serve the public in Albuquerque. 

Making data available in this way enables both data-driven decision-making and opportunities for local innovation and entrepreneurship. We applaud this move toward an even more engaged and responsive government.
