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.

FCC has a blog

The Federal Communications Commission has a new blog, blogband (“The official blog of the national broadband plan”), that is part of the FCC’s broadband.gov web site.

Blogband is part of the FCC’s commitment to an open and participatory process. Blogband will keep people up-to-date about the work the FCC is doing and the progress we’re making. But we want it to be a two-way conversation. The feedback, ideas, and discussions generated on this blog will be critical in developing the best possible National Broadband Plan.

As this blog demonstrates, the Internet is changing and expanding the way Americans communicate, providing them with unparalleled access to information.

Make a note: 2009 and the FCC says that their one and only blog demonstrates how the Internet is changing the way we communicate. Okay. I don’t want to be petty, and I’m glad they have this blog, but did they really think that “Blog Band” was a good name? And, does the FCC logo, when you look at it out of the corner of your eye, look like a frog? Maybe I’ve been reading too much Pynchon and am just feeling snarky today. Sorry.

Congratulations to the FCC for entering the twentieth (oops, I mean 21st!) century!

p.s. They have a Twitter feed as well! fccdotgov.

p.p.s. Supreme Court! Are you listening!?
