While the Freedom of Information Law is pioneering in nature, it needs to be modernized for the 21st Century. The Mayor’s Office of Data Analytics (MoDA) has started to deliver FOIL requests though the City’s Open Data catalogue. This is the first step. All future FOILable requests should fall under “once opened, always open.” This way when one FOIL response is published, it should be published online in a manner so no one else should have to FOIL the same material again.
