So how are we doing with open data?

I just watched this video again from Tim Berners-Lee (still not so recent, its 2010), reviewing progress on open data and some mashup examples. The one about the water connections (or lack of)  to white and black communities is particularly powerful.

Sadly, in Australia, I heard that data.gov.au has lost government support – it no longer has anyone looking after it. Sounds like a death knell. There is no “most recent datasets” list so its really hard to see if any new data has been posted.
