The struggle to obtain and publish public data in Hawaii
by Larry Geller
Ryan Ozawa has posted “the rest of the story” on how he and Civil Beat obtained the city salary data which they both posted today. It’s interesting reading, and could have implications for the release of future data.
Check out City Salaries and Civil Beat (Hawaiiweblog.com, 11/29/2010). There’s also a link to the data itself. The free data, that is.
It’s an important article so I won’t snip from it. Just go there if you are interested in open records or the public’s right to know.
