This is a request for a feature for Open Data Beta and perhaps for many other SE sites which needs a data sharing tool.
I have some data which is Open (free from copyright, patents or other control mechanisms) and I want to share it with the users on SE-OpenData. How do I do it without having to host it on some other server and share a link here?
As links change over time, I would like this community to provide an option to upload
Open Data and make it available for everyone.
Perhaps, SE can partner with some data sharing service and provide permanent links to resources that we want to share on the site. (Just like jsfiddle.net is used extensively for sharing executable code.)
Also we can have some kind of moderation for data that is shared, check if it is "Open" or not.
Also I would like to add that if this request is implemented, SE - Open Data community is going to be very famous soon.
(The same way a programmer searches for programming related questions, people with interest in Open Data and sharing Open resources would love to use this platform.)
Link to my question on Open Data, in case you are interested in reading some response from the SE Open Data community.
