I meant to blog about this last week, but things got hectic. Anyway, here’s an interesting story regarding the Department of Homeland Security’s recently redesigned and updated ready.gov site that was designed to disseminate disaster preparedness information. It turns out that the site is full of inaccuracies and incomplete information so the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) set their intern to analyzing the site.
Granted, this is only one govt Web site, but wouldn’t it be cool if the public could analyze govt sites and give suggestions/make changes that made those sites more informative and accurate? Can you say wiki-gov-opedia?
