The Obama administration's Digital Government Strategy, released a year ago in May by the Office of Management and Budget, is redefining the way the government thinks about the information it produces. The strategy is based on the notion that "all Americans should be able to access information from their Government anywhere, anytime, and on any device," says U.S. CIO Steve VanRoekel in a CIO Council blog.

Behind that strategy is an enlightened effort to treat data as a valuable national asset -- by releasing hundreds of government datasets and developing new ones via machine-readable formats. That effort gained new momentum when the President released a historic Executive Order and Open Data Policy making open and machine-readable the new default for government data.

If budget constraints are forcing agencies to rethink their approaches, the good news is, the technology tools now available are making it possible to actually deliver innovation solutions, not just think about them.

I watched that Mars landing and was very impressed by the images. I didn't realize NASA used Amazon hosting for that.
