Open-Government.us has some principles for Change.gov (our government-in-waiting). I just signed the petition.
Mostly I’d like documents to be in .html or .txt, instead of .doc and .pdf, or worse. That would be a great start.

“Or worse.” LOL.
What I’d like: all the transactions related to the bailout, but not just to read, to download the way the Census Bureau provides its data for demographers. Clear the way for some hotshot grad student to crunch and munch and see what’s really going on.

That’s right, Amyloo. If it’s data and not just text, the data should be in an open and readable format.

We will never know what is really going on – isn’t that the point?

@seanbohan @doctorow We need to make sure the backlash against this kind of surveillance is popular and timely. It isn't yet, but will be.

@DuaneKinsey Sure. Until they have little choice. (Some are interested, though.)
