And there are journalists already saying that 2011 is the year of data marketplaces. Take O’Reilly’s Edd Dumbill:
Marketplaces mean two things. Firstly, it’s easier than ever to find data to power applications, which will enable new projects and startups and raise the level of expectation—for instance, integration with social data sources will become the norm, not a novelty. Secondly, it will become simpler and more economic to monetize data, especially in specialist domains.
