Free access to Govt. information
Carl Malamud, founder and president of Public.Resource.org, has just taken another dramatic step toward free public access to governmental data. He purchased the Code of Federal Regulations from GPO (with support from Sunlight and several other organizations), and also suggested a partnership model for bulk data dissemination of ALL of GPO's bulk data resources. Carl explains in detail on public resource's GPO page here and in the letter he sent to Robert C. Tapella, Public Printer of the United States.
