Beyond the expected

We have open Government (or at least a website for it)

The ACT Government has launched its open government website.

It’s not immediately obvious what it does, but hey, it’s the vibe of the thing right?

There is an “What is Open Government?” page, which has this to say:

The Chief Minister went on to detail a number of practical initiatives supporting an Open Government initiative, one of which was the creation of the Open Government website.

Opening up Government, particularly on the Internet, is an ongoing process that will be undertaken incrementally in a spirit of experimentation tempered by the need to protect citizens’ privacy and security; always having regard to commercial confidentiality and copyright.

Which is a lovely motherhood statement, but doesn’t really tell us much.

Time will tell.

UPDATE: It does have an RSS feed for Cabinet outcomes, which is useful if it works.

What’s Your opinion?

Fine. Now maybe they’ll stop those silly s. 36 exemptions on FOI releases (that’s the “we can’t let you have it because you’ll know what we were thinking”).
