White House summary of open government brainstorming

The White House Blog has a nice summary of Open Government Brainstorm sponsored by the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). It says the brainstorm generated more than 1000 ideas.

A few items of interest to whet your appetite:

  • Convert Depository Libraries around the country into Regional Data Centers
  • Use Data.gov as a repository of newly declassified information
  • Make contributed data subject to a waiver of copyright and database rights
  • Government should create permalinks on the paragraph level to make documents easier to cite
  • Digitize all government research reports and make them available free
