Gov 2.0 in the news

The Gov.2.0 initiative, about disclosure of useful government information of potential benefit to the community, is running - Minister Lindsay Tanner is blogging away strongly about what he says the Federal Government is on about, which sounds great but has provoked a string of mostly sceptical comment; in the US state information officials are going to work with the White House to develop national standards on disclosure of government data but here is a view that being too open may be problematic; the UK Opposion Leader is talking about "letting data free" if he wins the next election; and the Victorian Parliament Economic Development and Infrastructure Committee reported last week on Improving Access to Victorian Public Sector Information and Data.

All grist for the mill for the Government 2.0 Taskforce.
