It's Official: Data.gov 2.0 is Coming

by

A few weeks ago, we speculated that a new Data.gov was on the way after hearing murmurs of a new ConOps (concept of operations) being circulated around by government employees. The new Data.gov Concept of Operations document has been released, and the Data.gov team is seeking feedback from the public.

I've just started reading the report, but it has some cameo appearances from some of our Apps for America entries as well as some really interesting ideas for how data should be reported on by the different agencies. Data.gov will definitely be the cornerstone of the new Open Government Directive.

So right now, go download the document and let them know what you think. I for one, think they need to use the National Data Catalog architecture and source.
