Recent work at the US National Congressional level to ‘establish duties for online service providers with respect to end-user data that such providers collect and use’.
Consider the statement by Facebook: you “own all of the contact and information you post on Facebook” and “can control how it is shared.” Do you? The statement implies Facebook enacts how you’d like to share your data on your behalf – they have primary control over how your data is shared. Does this imply accountability on Facebook’s part? How is that measured? Proven? Are derivative data defined? Do you control derived data on your interaction with Social Media companies?
As we deep-dive global cities working to create value from data, we’re sharing city data portals among the Data Supercluster membership. Community leaders and other stakeholders may find key metrics to refine products, form Action Clusters, rally and reach out to Citizens.
Chordant has developed a data exchange system to help break down the barriers to using Smart City data. Please comment below. Are the concepts useful to you? Have you approached Data Exchange differently? Love to hear from you. Please make your comments below.

How should the NIST Data blueprint address privacy, innovation, Open Data? Sidewalk Labs has revealed part of their plan for smart city development in Toronto.
Expansive public spaces, roads that can change in colour and use, and buildings that act as open malls are some of the design ideas Google affiliate Sidewalk Labs shared in a public meeting Tuesday evening, as part of the consultation process for its proposed “smart city” development on Toronto’s waterfront.
As Smart Cities and Communities establish regulatory, technology, and market-driven initiatives, data from a broad spectrum of sources can help establish value propositions, KPIs, proofs or disproof quickly, thus improving capital efficiency.
Action Clusters are a NIST GCTC innovation. Action Clusters help structure these experiments and prepare them to be shared at high visibility, in-person events. Avoid market roadblocks and potential friction in your community model by joining the GCTC effort.
The NIST GCTC Data SuperCluster online web is helping facilitate sharing in a familiar blog-based way. Our blog differs in that its designed to host not just articles and references, but live-real-time data visualizations and analysis.
Our new site aims to be an example of a living document that drives a Smart City blueprint for data, including licensing, authentication, data-exchange, economics, example use-cases and demonstrations of tools and technologies Stakeholders have expressed an interest in.
To build your model, one place to search is our online aggregation of sites with data sets, most of which are free.

The NIST GCTC Data Supercluster group is working to advance the use of urban data by developing and sharing best practices and produce blueprints for the design, deployment and governance of urban data platforms and data exchanges and governance and , as well as deployed proofs by facilitating sharing collaboration among membership teams and stakeholders further practical application of civic data.
The Data Supercluster addresses critical issues on data platforms. Stakeholders have identified licensing, cyber-security, encouraging innovation, understanding use-cases and proofs of concepts as importantpriority areas of study and sharing. This build off of a In 2017 NISt convening with, the cities of Kansas City, Missouri and Bellevue, Washington teamed withand 20 other cities and several corporate partners to focusdiscuss on Data urban data, data visualization and data hosting platforms.
In early 2018, these efforts efforts of that area, and a new were formalized into a new Data Governance and Exchange Superclustereffort were merged. The scope of the Data Supercluster recently has expanded to embraced work being done at the University of Southern California, City of Coral Gables among others.
The SuperCluster is currently documenting the common experiences among Action Clusters that span Transportation, Public Safety, Utility, Wireless, Ag and Rural, and Education through this website, the Data Supercluster Google Group, face to face and online meetings.
The Data supercluster is open to all stakeholders in GCTC Smart City projects. Innovation using Open Data and networking often experience friction in deployment and operation.

This Article examines what we term “regulatory entrepreneurship” — pursuing a line of business in which changing the law is a significant part of the business plan. Regulatory entrepreneurship is not new, but it has become increasingly salient in recent years as companies from Airbnb to Tesla, and from DraftKings to Uber, have become agents of legal change. We document the tactics that companies have employed, including operating in legal gray areas, growing “too big to ban,” and mobilizing users for political support. Further, we theorize the business and law related factors that foster regulatory entrepreneurship.

Google and other high profile businesses are equipping their employees with hardware authentication devices. The section of our blueprint deal with accounting, account settlements and assuring long-term access to data points to recent developments in strong authentication.
We are exploring YubiKey, a hardware device recently given away with a “Wired” Magazine subscription as one approach to Strong Authentication. Please comment below.
