FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Informal Portal for Gov’t Comment Taking

I joined FriendFeed on Christmas Day and I’ve already started wondering how it could be used to promote government resources.

One of the things that FriendFeed lets you do is to create “rooms” where items of interest can be shared in various ways, including imported RSS feeds.

So I have built a room I called Talk Back to Uncle Sam. The room takes feeds from Regulations.gov and gov’t blogs that accept comments from citizens.

Please have a look at the room at http://friendfeed.com/rooms/talk-back-to-uncle-sam and share items that you find interesting. If you are a FriendFeed subscriber, please consider telling others about the room.

And if you’re a fellow documents geek, please consider joining me at FriendFeed. I’m using the handle alaskanlibrarian there.

If you like Twitter, I think you’ll enjoy FriendFeed.
