Join the movement! Open Data should include Hyper format.

As I was downloading data sets from the NYC portal (, time was ticking waiting for one 22GB CSV.

As a Hyper file, it was under 2GB -- and that got me thinking!! Open Data portals need to include Hyper as an option.

If you agree, please give this a thumbs up on the Tableau Ideas Forum. I've already suggested this to the NYC Open Data office, which is a big first step.
