re: The IRS Scandal and (Web) Transparency

The calculation I offered a few days ago is what is getting the IRS into trouble, but then many Agencies have been browbeat into the lame math of perpetual upward trends.  This is a lurking side issue which affects Federal Government Statistics, Government Federal Statistics and federalized data sets.

Federalized Data Sets in RDF which are said to reflect polarization do not.  The 
simple explanation is that the circumference of a circle cannot be 
unambiguously represented as an RDF List.


<rdf:rest>.00... (lots of digits)</rdf:rest>
<rdf:nil />

The energy value of (ionization/capture) is different from the energy constant of dissociation.  Although you can ionize Hydrogen, you cannot take the pH out of Water.  RDF plays favourites, and the only way to make it "democratic" is to realize why it is not incorrigible.

Jeanne, the Executive Order and M-13-13 are now available in open, standard, machine-readable StratML Part 1, Strategic Plan, format at http://xml.fido.gov/stratml/drybridge/index.htm#EOOMRD & http://xml.fido.gov/stratml/drybridge/index.htm#OMB or, more specifically, http://xml.fido.gov/stratml/carmel/EOOMRDwStyle.xml & http://xml.fido.gov/stratml/carmel/M-13-13wStyle.xml 
It would be good to include in the online repository required by the EO the StratML standard (ANSI/AIIM 21:2009 & 22:2011) as well as the tools, applications, and services supporting the standard.  
It would also be good for agencies to publish their required progress reports in StratML Part 2, Performance Plan/Report, format.
Hopefully, StratML Part 3, Additional Elements, will be published soon as an AIIM best practice.  Its central focus is to more fully address the data requirements implicit in GPRAMA, albeit in ways generically applicable to all organizations worldwide.  It will be issued as a best practice rather than a standard to expedite publication and solicit feedback for subsequent improvement in the standardization process.

Hi all--
Today, President Obama issued an Executive Order and Open Data Policy that are ground-breaking in their requirement for U.S. agencies to open up new data and information, present those in human- and machine-readable formats, and will help to usher in the next stage of open data innovation.
Those of us at the Data.gov team are seeking your great ideas and constructive criticism as we move forward to the next phase of Data.gov. We want to scale up the quality and quantity of data, be more helpful to American businesses and entrepreneurs looking to use government data and research, more clearly support learning in classrooms, get government data in front of researchers and journalists, and bring the power of open data to American citizens. 
It’s all about getting you to the data you need as quickly as possible in a variety of machine-readable formats with better search, more APIs, easier ways to share data, more data resources federated.  You can see an early view of our new CKAN-powered  catalog. You’ve told us via forums, list serves, hack-a-thons, blogs, social media, and meetups around the country and the world that we need to have more and better capabilities for developers and innovators.  We are listening.
Find out more details about the technical implementations underway and let us know what you think at Data.gov or via Twitter @usdatagov! Get the inside scoop from the U.S. CIO and U.S. CTO on YouTube.
