Carl Malamud of Public.Resource.Org discussed the Law.gov legal open government data project with Hari Sreenivasan on PBS NewsHour on 8 September 2010.
Carl also gave the keynote address, about reform of U.S. federal government information technology (IT) practices, at the 2010 Gov 2.0 Summit on 7 September 2010. Carl’s keynote may be of particular interest to the legal informatics community because the address focuses on the U.S. National Archive and Records Administration’s ERA: Electronic Records Archives system, which is intended to be the principal platform for preserving digital U.S. federal legal information.

Carl’s address also calls for the U.S. federal government to require use of open IT systems, as the Government of India is also considering.
