If you build it, let them come. Simplified Finds.

On the main data.gov website, there is the Agency Participation tab. It does what you expect. It shows agencies and related statistics. What it doesn't do is simplify search. If you present this information, the statistics entice you to click on the participant to see what and why. If you can generate the numbers, you can populate a hyperlinked search to the datasets, tools, and more. Having to go back and then filter in small boxes should be optional. While I appreciate the tutorials, not everyone has time to go through them. I know the agencies, it should be just as easy to know in 1 click what they offer. Without this simplification, we may be the recipients of our own design. Transparancy isn't transparrant if it's not easy to see and find.
