StarTribune - Minneapolis Sees Civic Push for Open Data

Incase you missed it, Eric Roper of the StarTribune wrote a great feature article in the February 2nd issue covering civic tech, open data, the Minneapolis open data direction to staff, and Capitol Code.

Minneapolis has kept a tight grip on the information it collects even as cities across the country open up streams of public data to developers, journalists and the public. But this past November’s election has spurred calls at City Hall to liberate that data, from food inspections to landlord violations, so it can be analyzed and manipulated for the public good.
