Improving the DATA act – open govt in the USA

July 8th, 2011

Beth Noveck, NYU law professor and previously Deputy Chief Technology Officer of the US, and I have written a  blog posting that discusses the DATA act, a proposed US law to improve the transparency of US spending. I realized this may also be of interest to folks working on Linked Data, and especially linked open government data, so I thought I’d mention this here as well.
