White House announces Open Data policy - dawn of a new age of information sharing

The White House today released an Executive Order -- Making Open and Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information.

In addition there is now a new open source tools project and resources on GitHub in support of this initiative.

The potential here to change how a whole range of services are delivered to citizens is significant and also for new services and commercial opportunities to emerge that utilize these data services.

To see the types of potential here - see sample Open Data API show case work on the related VerifyXML.org site also.
