Happy Birthday, Open Government Directive

Today was a big day in the world of Open Government.  I was out of the office today, but here’s a note from Amy Bennett of OpenTheGovernment.org…

“As many of you know, today marks the one year anniversary of the release of the Open Government Directive (OGD). Patrice McDermott, Director of OpenTheGovernment.org, and Carolyn Lukensmeyer, Founder and President of AmericaSpeaks, penned a piece cross-posted on Government Executive (www.govexec.com/story_page.cfm?articleid=46682&oref=todaysnews) and here on NextGov highlighting the successes of the OGD to date and recommending “next steps” for the Administration to take to make government more open and participatory. This afternoon, Dr. McDermott and David Stern, Director of Online Engagement at AmericaSpeaks, discussed the OGD with Chris Dorobek on Federal News Radio; you can listen to the interview at www.federalnewsradio.com/index.php?nid=149.”
