NCDD Members’ Contributions to the Open Gov’t Dialogue

Here are direct links to the NCDD contributions I know of (so far) to the White House’s Open Government Dialogue at http://opengov.ideascale.com. Let’s support each other’s ideas by taking care to “vote up” the posts you agree with that have been submitted by members of our community!  I’ll keep adding new links to NCDDers’ posts to the blog, so please email them to me.
