Data Transparency 2013

Live blogging from the Data Transparency 2013 conference.

First panel – Jeanne Holm, Data.gov mentions using GitHub for open policy development. Anne Castle – Making LandSat data free increased use by more than two orders of magnitude. Government forgoes user fees, recoups a larger economy and tax base, IMHO.

Very positive start to the conference!

Congressman Darrell Issa  – Madison project working to open the way legislation is written and changed. Open, transparent sausage-making!

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor – Transparency can lead to a more efficient Federal government.
