I’m so excited about this, I couldn’t wait to post about it before diving in. I present proudly to you Data.gov.
From the site’s home page:
The purpose of Data.gov is to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. Although the initial launch of Data.gov provides a limited portion of the rich variety of Federal datasets presently available, we invite you to actively participate in shaping the future of Data.gov by suggesting additional datasets and site enhancements to provide seamless access and use of your Federal data. Visit today with us, but come back often.
Thank you, Obama Administration, for sincerely treating federal data as belonging to the People.
