“DC Comics is defined by characters and stories. With a strong comic book heritage, the brand wanted to expand the reach of its stories across a broader range of media. The identity captures the dual identity of the characters and reveals worlds of boundless storytelling. It is living, ever-changing and adaptive to the superheroes and story lines. It unveils a world where the dark, the optimistic and the supernatural coexist.”

Open health refers to a set of developing information technologies that make it easier for patients, professionals and administrators to access health-care information or make it anonymous and open to the public.
This is done by integrating existing health-care records and data. It is hoped the result will be more health information for more people to access more easily.
Open health requires online access. It’s easy to think of this as a background issue because the national broadband network is due to roll out in Australia over the next few years. But the so-called digital divide is a real concern in Australia and around the world.
What’s more, the world isn’t just divided between those who have internet access and those who don’t. We also need to consider the staggering differences between the quality of access, individual internet literacy, and how these variables can be leveraged to create good outcomes.
Although the digital divide is closing, a large number of vulnerable individuals still don’t have basic internet access. And technological literacy is a necessary part of using open health services.
Open health will hold data on vulnerable populations that those populations may not be able to use through lack of access. The elderly, for instance, are major users of health-care services so we need to ensure that they have the technological access and the capacity to engage with open health.
New technologies can bring huge benefits to those with the resources, education, and opportunity to access them. Open health is no exception.
Perhaps the most obvious concern for open data policy is the privacy of individuals. If there’s enough identifiable information in a data set that has become public, then individuals can be picked out and potentially targeted by private businesses, government agencies, and even by police in ways they might not want.
Even if the intentions of the viewer are good, we still have the right to expect that our personal information remains anonymous and our privacy is protected.
Linked data can be very useful to citizens and businesses alike, but carries with it the risk of de-anonymisation. There’s a concern that primary data, which hasn’t been interpreted or aggregated, can be used to identify individuals.
The important thing about linking data is that individual data sets, such as age, height, car model and postcode, are not considered overly private. And a lot of this sort of innocuous personal information can be accessed online – through sites such as Facebook, and census data, for instance.
We should also be concerned about who can exploit the data, and how much control we have over access. Some of us may not want even our anonymised data being used in ways we don’t agree with.
Open health should make opting out simple. While large scale opt-outs are likely to diminish the utility of data, we have to weigh the trade-off between privacy and potential innovation carefully.
Finally, to whom do we turn if something goes wrong? With a move towards more automated and rapid release of data, there’s more urgency around what options individual citizens and groups have to question, comment, or contest the release and use of open data.
Podría parecerles largo el título del artículo, sin embargo, lo consideré para enmarcar las dos herramientas que deseo exponer, ya que al combinarlas se pueden obtener muy buenos resultados en las tan difíciles reuniones con el equipo de proyecto, bien sea para discutir ideas o para generar soluciones a posibles problemas.
