Consider elements of a complete open data ecosystem

Nat Torkington recently posted Truly Open Data at http://radar.oreilly.com/2010/03/truly-open-data.html, in which he argues for an "open source approach" to data, considering lessons learned from the successful open source software community.

Gov't efficiency & suggestion site

One improvement that might be more difficult to overcome is to insert a field programmable RFID chip into each bill. The chip... more »

Centralize the encryption & data protection laws by location

Find most recent additions to data catalog

I'm always on the lookout for new data sets that I can use in teaching. To this end, it would be helpful if:

1) There were a way to notify me, e.g., by RSS, email, etc., when new data sets are added to the data catalog

2) There were a way to sort the list of data sets in the catalog by date entered

Thanks.
