While I still am digesting open data, I do have to take a break occasionally and during one of them today, I ran across a post from James Altucher that pairs the Hare Krishnas and Louis CK as both using the law of reciprocity and commitment bias to get people to go along with them in ways that they might not otherwise do. Reviewing how I pitch Citizen Intelligence, I’ve been doing very little of this. At least now I’ll have something new to chew over as I hunt down APIs and JSONs via Data.gov.
