Tools for transparency

From E-Democracy.org

Along side the Minnesota Civic Hackathon on Dec. 12, the Other Future of News event will be going all day.

Steven Clift will be sharing five minutes with this online media-oriented gathering on "tools for transparency." He has a 60 slide presentation on How the Internet Can Support Government Transparency and Citizen Engagement Presentation from last year available as well. The plan is to present great examples of newer online tools useful in reporting tied to government transparency and political engagement as well as notable media and other online efforts using raw government data in interesting ways. We are interested in local, state, and some national examples. Operational sites only.
