Hello, all! It's been a while since I've logged in here. Glad to see folks sharing & commenting in communities. In theory, there are 1.5 million accounts circling me. In practice, I'm not sure how many of you are active. Please +1 or comment to let me know you're here! I'd like to reconnect with people on Plus, if you're here.

Hi everyone! Sorry not to have checked on the moderation queue for a while. Some spam slipped in. I have removed several posts and banned the users.

I haven't been diligent about sharing our work at the Sunlight Foundation with you. If you're interested, we publish a daily update over email and on our blog: https://sunlightfoundation.com/blog/

From John Wonderlich and me, for the Sunlight Foundation: "Political spending is increasingly taking place online, and yet online ads have the least transparency. Reforms to regulations and disclosure are urgently needed.

Online political ad spending should be proactively disclosed in a machine-readable format online to the public and election regulators. Google and Facebook could even do that online every day, for each buy and campaign, in a feed of ads and their targets." https://sunlightfoundation.com/2017/09/12/technology-companies-should-publish-political-advertising-files-online/

Up and out early today, headed up to New York City on a fine summer morning to talk about artificial intelligence and government. The American flags are up at Union Station, a reminder of the patriotic weekend ahead of us and the centuries of sacrifice and progress behind.

If you're on the road today too, where do your travels take you on this holiday weekend?

‪New to me: +You Tube has added a livestream option to its iOS app. Presumably, livestreams are moderated & governed by existing policy & ToS.‬

‪I cycled down to the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.‬

‪This is what I saw: residents, people walking to the Tax March, Members of Congress gathering, a celebrity impersonator getting made up to play President Trump, crowds of curious tourists, and the cameras of media there to capture it all.

It's definitely springtime in D.C.‬
