Ben Wellington's Humorous TED Talk on Why NYC Open Data is Still Too Closed

Data guru Ben Wellington of I Quant NY, a Visiting Assistant Professor at Pratt's School of Architecture, gave an informative and humorous peek at the semi-open state of New York City data during a recent TEDx New York conference. While it's true that New York City government agencies have come a long way in exposing data to the public, the fact that many agencies require you to bring a physical hard drive, or parse a convoluted PDF in order to get it, leaves much to be desired.
