OpenTheGovernment.org and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) recently launched a new Web site (http://www.showusthedata.org/) to allow the public to decide what government information is not available on the Internet that should be.
Show Us the Data gives the public the opportunity to share what documents they think should be made available and to vote on the documents that others have submitted. The deadline to participate is March 9, 2009. Don’t miss this chance to have your opinions heard — head over to Show Us the Data and get started!
The project will result in a report that will recommend documents and data that the federal government should make more freely available to the public in usable formats.
