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.

Multimedia at EPA

The Environmental Protection Agency has consolidated its Web 2.0 multimedia (video, photos, audio, podcasts) at Multimedia Center, US EPA.

The current featured video is an interview with with US EPA Deputy Administrator Marcus Peacock, discussing the Greenversations blog. It is worth watching (only about 5 minutes) as an enthusiastic view of the possibilities of better citizen communications with government.

Unfortunately, the EPA, as far as I can tell, has not provided a way to bookmark videos or download them for preservation and has settled on the “standard” of Flash video, rather than open source video formats. (See Feds set sights on small screen, By Wade-Hahn Chan, FCW, August 11, 2008).
