Karen Suhaka of LegiNation and Dr. Joshua Tauberer of GovTrack gave a “lightning talk” presentation entitled Legislative Transparency: A Round Up of Efforts and Results to Date (featuring this GoogleDoc spreadsheet on Open Gov Business Models) at IOGDC 2012 Virtual Conference: International Open Government Data Conference, 7 July 2012.
Part of the presentation concerned descriptions and examples of several different business models for using or reusing legislative and other government data. The legislative examples included:
- BillTrack50 (an example of the “Freemium” business model)
- GovTrack (“Advertising”)
- LexisNexis (“Pay services”)
- POPVOX (“Startup”)
- Sunlight Foundation (“Nonprofit”)
- THOMAS (“Government”)
The authors invite you to contribute additional business models and examples of use and reuse of open government data, to their GoogleDoc spreadsheet.
