Think you may find my work with the new field of “democratizing data,” through automated structured data feeds is directly relevant to new realities: need to restore public faith in government through transparency, give agency workers real-time data they need to work more efficiently, and, as DC proved through the “Apps for Democracy” contest, the data can evoke incredible public partnership and “wisdom of crowds.” I’m writing a book on the subject for O’Reilly, to be published in July, and welcome any examples you know of. A couple of Slideshares will give you a better understanding of the approach and its benefits: http://tinyurl.com/5uwhaj
