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.

52 Days to Government Information Liberation

This is a pirate transmission. The opposing forces have gone off shopping — leaving me a few moments before they return.

I am very encouraged by the initial response to my earlier suggestions to get the conversation about democratic/government information mechanisms in our libraries. I also applaud Jim’s “connecting the dots” about government information secrecy. He is absolutely right — this is a powerful aspect of blogging that shares an even longer history of advocacy and education within our bibliographic institutions — and speaks well to what I imagine the Talk back to democracy! project would do.

Uh-oh, I hear footsteps somewhere, I think the opposing forces have returned. Must end transmission. Will get back to my other points tomorrow.

See you on Day 51.
