The White House – “Today, the Department of Homeland Security launched The Blog @ Homeland Security, which will be updated frequently with news on the Secretaryâ€™s activities and events, and will discuss emerging technology that the department is developing.”
The White House – “As part of the Open Government Initiative, the President tasked Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Peter Orszag with issuing an Open Government Directive to Federal agencies.Â The OMB Directive will be informed by recommendations being developed by the Chief Technology Officer.Â Consistent with the Presidentâ€™s goals of promoting government transparency, participation, and collaboration, the public has been invited to offer ideas and suggestions.”
InternetNews – “The dream of an effective and open e-government, a great hope of the Obama administration, rides on the ability of government officials to emulate the Web 2.0 model in the private sector, where some of the biggest success stories have been built through a decentralized, crowd-sourced model, a White House official said today.”
I love articles that start off like this: – “The historical record of the United States government will soon be more accessible.”
Good times people. Good times.
