New eGovernment Activity Focus Proposed; Guidelines for Publishing  
Open Government Data Published
2009-09-09: Today, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announces a  
draft work plan for the eGovernment Interest Group, whose mission is  
to document, advocate, coordinate and communicate best practices,  
solutions and approaches to improve the interface between citizens and  
government through effective use of Web standards. The draft charter,  
in review by the W3C community until the end of September, focuses on  
two topics: Open Government Data (OGD), and Education and Outreach. In  
line with its anticipated focus on Open Government Data, the group  
also announces today a first draft of Publishing Open Government Data,  
which provides step-by-step guidelines for putting government data on  
the Web. Sharing data according to these guidelines enables greater  
transparency; delivers more efficient public services; and encourages  
greater public and commercial use and re-use of government  
information. Learn more about the W3C eGovernment Activity. (Permalink)
