Our Impact

A Public Voice for Progress With Data

               From the beginning, CODE’s team members have used print, online, and electronic media and many public appearances to promote the use of open and shared data for the public good. Our origins date back to the 2014 publication of the book Open Data Now, written by CODE founder Joel Gurin, which laid out the research, principles, and vision that led to the development of CODE. Since then, CODE staff members have written on a wide range of topics for online publications including The Hill, Government Executive, FedScoop, and Huffington Post. We’ve keynoted and participated in numerous conferences on every continent except Antarctica. And we’ve appeared on radio and television programs to reach audiences with a compelling interest in data-driven solutions for government. 
               Whatever the medium, the venue, or the topic, our messages underscore the vital importance of data as a public resource for progress. Below are links to CODE’s presence in the public sphere, beginning with the most recent.
