... and More Sunshine
The 2010 State of the Media Report has just been released - a terrific review of what's going on with the news media and where things are headed.
There is also a freshly-issued Secrecy Report Card from Open the Government that sums up developments is government secrecy and transparency in 2009.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has a blog post on the importance of Freedom of Information Act requests being carried out without undue over-redaction.
To give credit where it's due, the federal government does share lots of information - including a new website that includes copies of the decennial census of population and housing going back to 1790.
