I wanted to share the article Towards a Community Data Commons by Greg Bloom with you all. It discusses the community resource directory data problem, or the comprehensive knowledge over what organisation provides which services to whom; and suggest a commons approach using interoperable open data.
It originally appeared in Beyond Transparency, a book that is a collection of articles about Open Data published by Code for America. The Book itself is an excellent read and is available here. A highly suggest read, and it somewhat ties with the directory Future Makers Global is currently trying to build. @Alberto
