Principles for an Open Transition

Lawrence Lessig launched the website An Open Transition which offers President-elect Obama three principles to “guide the transition in its objective to build upon the very best of the Internet to produce the very best for government”.

These principles include:

– No Legal Barrier to Sharing
– No Technological Barrier to Sharing
– Free Competition

Read more about these principles, view the video, and sign the petition at open-government.us.
