The shift from secrecy to transparency

That in tray will be filled to overflowing long before 20 January but the US Sunlight Foundation has published an open letter to President -Elect Obama with suggestions from some of the experts on how he might "undo the culture of secrecy and transform the presidential administration into a transparent operation."It's an interesting read, and includes many ideas on Freedom of Information and related reforms that could be added to our own wish-lists for those government leaders here who keep saying they are interested in the topic.
