We see that the so called “develop” countries like France, Finland, US, Australia, UK are invested in the open data movement and they are making changes toward it.

In order to have open data you need strong political institutions, financial stability and other factors that some developing countries could lack. In that context, do we risk that open data creates more separation between “developed” and “developing” countries?

Moreover, the technical aspects of provide open data could be challenges for some “developing” countries.  For instance, in countries like Cuba the internet access is still limited.

This could contribute that the adoption of open data is slow, limited but most of all could prevent to have the same impact those in “developed” countries.
