I really like presentation from Jason Birch from City of Nanaimo about reasons to open data and how to do it. http://www.slideshare.net/JasonBirch/moving-beyond-the-desk

I'm putting together a proposal here at the City to open up more of our datasets to the public. We currently have about 30 GIS data layers available to the public,<UrlBlockedError.aspx> with ~170 layers that are not public. While there are some layers that won't be made available for security or licensing issues, there are many that the owners of simply don't want to make available.
I'm looking for information to include in a short proposal that might sway some of the folks sitting on datasets internally to get them to publish the data to the masses and need points of reasoning to point them at.
I already have some info related to general practices moving towards this type of data availability, and some of the recent threads on the OSGEO lists about data licensing would likely come into play as well.
Thanks for any pointers on this.
