Dear LOD community,

Here are some salient points about open LOD from the US .gov

Todd Park, now  US CTO, previously lead open health data initiatives 
when he was CTO for the Whitehouse ONC Office of the Nartional 
Coordinator for Health IT, he lead a comprehensive program to open up US 
health data and LOD initiatives:

See: http://www.healthdata.gov/blog/domain-challenge-1-metadata

And Jim Hendler and his colleagues at  RPI, are principally instrumental 
in US .gov semweb activities - see:

http://data-gov.tw.rpi.edu/wiki

  and
IOGDS: International Open Government Dataset Search
http://logd.tw.rpi.edu/demo/international_dataset_catalog_search

Finally Danny Weizner, who has worked with Sir TimBL at w3C for several 
years just finished a couple of years service with the White House 
OSTP   ( Office of Science and Technology Policy ) representing LOD and 
semweb points of view.

  I'm surepeople on this list know some of these folks, who can supply 
more insight on .gov semweb and LOD programs.

Cheers-

Mike
