Feds Go Nekkid

October 5, 2009

The Federal Government got a little bit more transparent recently. The Federal Register is now online. And thanks to the folks at The Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University, it’s also XML enabled, which for non-techies, means you can search it and comment on it, all online. This is good thing!

What’s the Federal Register?

It’s the “official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents.”  The U.S. Government publishes it five days a week.

I’m just enough of a geek to think this is Really! Cool! Stuff!

It’s nearly as cool as the OpenCongress.org website, where you can read the text of bills pending before Congress.
