Many organizations are trying to figure out how to utilize all this data and understand its value. However, a lot of this data is now becoming open to the public. How much of this data do we really want to reveal?

I recently came across a website OpenData by Socrata.  It is an open data platform that offers every day folks access to public information. It is a data set that has more than 10,000 different lists of education, government, business, personal and FUN data.   This type of data aggregration can help businesses integrate into their own analytics. Or, it can just be a fun free data aggregation site to check out.

For example:

Curious on what the white house staff employees salaries are?

Did you know that $7,040,083.73 of unclaimed funds exist! Take a look at the data sheet to see if you are someone you know are on the list!

Want to know the most common causes of food recalls in the last 5 years, based on the FDA analysis?

Or maybe you want to see a list of the top 1,000 songs to hear before you die!
