What if data could be collected and searched online in the same way that Wikipedia is? How much benefit could that have for research and problem solving?

“Data Collaboratives are an emerging form of public-private partnership in which participants from different sectors — including private companies, research institutions, and government agencies — exchange data to help solve public problems,” the GovLab’s Andrew Young writes in a post.
