— ReadWriteWeb’s Marshall Kirpatrick, “Data.gov Now Live; Looks Nice But Short on Data.”
— TechPresident’s Micah Sifry (also of Sunlight) and Nancy Scola, “White House Opens Doors on Major Open Government Initiative.”
— And, of course, don’t forget to get involved with the summer sequel to Apps for America, Apps for America 2: The Data.gov Challenge. (Like all great summer sequels it has lots of explosions and Megan Fox. Check it out.)
