Pittsburgh libraries join initiative to protect data

“On the second floor of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh on Sunday, Priya Donti could be found hunched over a laptop, combing through government databases on monthly normal temperatures across different states.The Carnegie Mellon University student’s participation in the first Data Rescue Pittsburgh event was driven by just as much a passion for open and transparent data as fear. Disturbed by reports that Donald Trump’s presidential administration might review Environmental Protection Agency climate data before it’s published, she joined more than 40 programmers, activists, librarians and researchers in the library in an effort to pinpoint and secure publicly accessible data sets.” (via Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
