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.

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?

@profcarroll Why trust the purveyors of what you don't want to help you not want it, when they obviously have no interest in doing so?

@Bitly: Dislike the new UI. Way too gimmicky and fancy. Also, what happened to j.mp? Gone or just hidden as an option?
@Ednever @realjohngatto If the kid wants to be an engineer and to learn what it takes. And castes are what IQ testing creates. Been there.
