Our fair government, global champion of the public domain, returns to its roots of maverick transparency : with public ‘dashboards’ showing exactly where our $70B of annual IT spending is going, what projects are on or behind schedule, which officials are in charge of each division and which contractors are responsible for each project.

I love it — and I want it for every organization I care about.  Mad props to Vivek Kundra – whose quote about “having up to 30 days” to get used to the new system is priceless.
