From Colin Rule’s blog.
The White House announced its Open Government initiative today… check it out at http://www.whitehouse.gov/open. My good friend Beth Noveck’s fingerprints are all over this. I urge you to visit the site and participate in the “Brainstorming” phase. This is an exciting step forward in both participating and transparency for the Federal level in the US.
From the website:
“Vivek Kundra, our Chief Information Officer, and Beth Noveck, Deputy Chief Technology Officer for Open Government, explain the Open Government Initiative:
On January 21, 2009, his first full day in office, the President issued a Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government and called for recommendations for making the Federal government more transparent, participatory, and collaborative.
As Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President says in the video below, we are proud “to announce an important next step in this historic call to action – one that will help us achieve a new foundation for our government – a foundation built on the values of transparency, accountability and responsibility.”
