To fully participate, people need to see the invitation of open data, and open data initiatives. Without this type of literacy, we are limiting participation to those who care to seek out solutions - we're moving too slow.

And this isn't only *just* understanding how to 'use' data, it's giving people a realization - that they can innovate for how we share, when we share, and what mechanisms can make using and understanding that information clearer; that they can invent and improve. Ultimately prosperity of individuals with this empowered learning, drive social-eocnomic benefits far and beyond what we can imagine.
