"Open Our Government List"

Sunlight just launched a site asking for recommendations on what should be in the Open Government Directive. It looks like Sunlight has spun this out using the same software they used for "Show Us The Data".

My personal favorite so far is the wonky "Digital deposit of govt information to libraries." It's obscure but important. As libraries increasingly rely on digital collections, it's critical that they obtain the actual content of these materials rather than simply remote access to a government database (which could go away at some point).

Oh, and don't for get to vote for no-fee PACER access on the Show us the Data site.
