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.

Phishy, yet Phunny and Quite Useful

Thanks to Sabrina Pacifici over at beSpacific, FGI learned about a great new FTC video series at YouTube. The most recent videos are warnings against phishing, where bad actors try to trick you into revealing personal information:

While YouTube is great from a publicity standpoint, it would be good from a preservation and reuse/remix standpoint if they’d also put these great videos into the Internet Archive. But we at FGI salute this effort to bring gov’t education on phishing into web 2.0 forums.
