Your Morning Government Transparency Roundup

ARCHIVES

From the home office in Wahoo, Nebraska:

  • GSA has created an awesome combined RSS of news feeds throughout the federal government. Today, via the feed, I learned from the Census Bureau that the current U.S. population is approximately 306,569,004!
  • Congressman Mike Honda (D-CA) wants you to help redesign his website. He's using a platform called crowdSPRING, which encourages users to "just post your project, watch the world submit ideas and choose the one you like." Oh, if only it were that simple.
  • It looks like Recovery.gov, the site designated as a central portal for stimulus information, is getting a makeover! Key quote: "It's going to shift from an inside-the-Beltway Web site to something that people from throughout the country can use to find out what's going on in their neighborhood." The hunt is on for a vendor who is up to the task. (Full disclosure: My employer, the National Academy of Public Administration, worked with the Recovery Board earlier this year to run a national online dialogue soliciting ideas on this very topic.)
  • The White House's Beth Noveck posts an update on the results of the Office of Science and Technology Policy's online open government brainstorm that went live May 21st. The main themes highlighted here will feed a "discussion phase" in which they are subject to more focused discussion and elaboration. (Full disclosure: Yup, this one, too.)
  • Federal News Radio's Chris Dorobek captures a phenomenon rarer than an upside-down rainbow: All three e-gov administrators in the same photo!
And that's the news! Consider this an open thread.
