I’ve been working on a universal open directory of government contact information called DemocracyMap and I’d love to get some feedback on it. The service primarily focuses on things like the main phone number and website for a city or elected official, but it could expand beyond that. In particular, I’d love your feedback on the the proposal in the Knight News Challenge which closes later today. You can see that and provide feedback at https://www.newschallenge.org/open/open-government/submission/democracymap/There’s also an article that provides a broader overview of this issue at http://blog.okfn.org/2013/03/15/the-biggest-failure-of-open-data-in-government/
