7 Ways Companies Are Using the Government's Open Data | Digital media for open policy making & public sector innovation | Scoop.it

A report from a White House task force on open data and "smart disclosure" released Wednesday highlights several commercial and non-profit operations built around open data.

A Citizen’s Guide to Open Government, E-Government, and Government 2.0

Engaged citizens want clear, credible information from the government about how it’s carrying on its business. They don’t want to thumb through thousands of files or wait month after month or go through the rigors of filing claims through FOIA (Freedom of Information Act). They want government information, services, and communication to be forthcoming and swift. The Open Government, Government 2.0, and E-Governance movements fill the need of connecting citizens with the government and each other to foster a more open, collaborative, and efficient public sector through the use of new technology and public data.
