OpenGovernment Is A Finalist For SXSW Accelerator


We’ve been really pleased with the enthusiastic response that OpenGov has received since its launch. Today’s brought one more bit of good news: the site’s been named a finalist in the Accelerator competition of this year’s SXSWi. You can find the full details over at the OG blog. Congratulations to David, Carl and the rest of the PPF team!

And while I’ve got you thinking about state legislative data, check out what Gabriel Florit’s done to visualize data from Open States. It’s very neat stuff, and a great early example of the kinds of things that we think project will make possible.
