Here’s some links related to open government for the past week or so. Enjoy!
- “Though it’s being overshadowed by the budget discussions this week, it’s important to note (and celebrate!) that today (April 7th) is the one year anniversary of Agency Open Government Plans.”
- “So to honor the one year anniversary of Open Gov, I’ve listed a few examples of what the Federal Open Government community has accomplished to date in a remarkably short period of time.”
- (Here’s the GovLoop version – where I originally saw the post)
- Discussion about cell phones being used during meetings by board members, decorum, etc.
- “When many agencies capture social media records for archiving–to the extent they do–they do so by printing out the content onto paper and storing that, finds a report from an industry advisory group.
- “The report, released April 1 and prepared by a special interest group of the Fairfax, Va.-based American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council, incorporates information gleaned from interviews with officials from nine federal agencies, and also from the city of Washington, D.C.”
- Also see “Agencies share best practices on social media records”, which is another article on the same report.
