This paper presents the flow of open data using the case of public university governance in South Africa. It reveals two different forms of open data supply from the same closed, government dataset. The paper argues that supply and demand should not be separated in open data research, that the shape of the open data supplied is informed by demand, and that different forms of open data supply may have varying degrees of impact and at different governance system levels.
