White House to open source Data.gov as open government data platform

New post at the +O'Reilly Radar on today's open data news out of Washington: "As 2011 comes to an end, there are 28 international open data platforms in the open government community.

A partnership between the United States and India on open government has borne fruit: progress on making the open data platform Data.gov open source."

I interviewed US CIO +Steven VanRoekel for this one. I hope you all find it of interest. This is a story to watch.

@pareene:“I think Chris Christie just jumped into the race.”

@robdelaney:“Did anyone I have a crush on’s husband or boyfriend die in the earthquake? DM me.”

@chashomans:“I guess I better get an intern working on a ‘Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Mayan Serpent God’ listicle.”

@MichaelSLinden:“US Geological Survey’s budget was cut by some $20 million this year. #justsaying”

@daveweigel:“DEVELOPING: Earthquake turns Gallup offices upside down. Obama now at 62% approval”

@ezraklein:“The Ocean’s 13 team is presumably stealing something pretty valuable right now.”

@jdickerson:“Everyone calm down. If this is an earthquake on the east coast we’re supposed to react ironically.”

@TomFornelli:“WOLF BLITZER IS ON THE PHONE WITH THE EARTHQUAKE.”

@davidfrum:“DC public schools did not dismiss. The kids are tougher than Politico.”

@dylanmatt:“In retrospect, I resorted to cannibalism rather fast after the earthquake.”

Plus, add:
@pourmecoffee: If you had End of the World Sex, just clean up, exchange phony contact information and go back into your office building.


@ezraklein: This earthquake has clear policy implications that back up my previously held political opinions.
