Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

NetSquared $100K mashup competition

TechSoup’s NetSquared mashup challenge pays out a total $100K this year to the best of 122 submitted projects.

I’m going to have way too much fun browsing through the project proposals. Casting my votes, though, is already proving difficult… Using user downtime? Massive mashup calendars? Warnings for hidden corporate abuses every time I make an online purchase?


And of course, many of these envisioned projects would not even be imaginable were it not for widely available and mostly reliable government information data sources.
