White House Rolls Out New Rules to Open Up Government Data

“The White House on Thursday introduced new rules that seek to make government data more open and accessible to researchers and the public, through an executive order signed by President Obama and an open-data policy released by the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Science and Technology Policy. The president’s executive order says that the default state of government data must be open and machine readable, and that agencies must protect “privacy, confidentiality, and national security” when releasing information in such open formats.” (via The Chronicle of Higher Education)
