We’ll see how this plays out but this is exciting news:
“The Obama administration released a long-awaited openness directive Tuesday, ordering ornery federal agencies to comply with its government sunshine promises, including creating interactive open-government web pages and publishing three new raw-data sets in 45 days.”
I hear you saying, “wow it can’t get any better than this- a more open and honest Government!” – Oh but it does.
“Agencies also have 60 days to launch open-government pages at the standardized URL of http://www.AgencyName.gov/open.”
Wild stuff, wild wild stuff. Maybe not that wild, but these are steps necessary in fostering a better democracy.
