On Tuesday, March 16, I will be posting to a forum on Govloop, a series of thoughts and recommendations entitled “All Inclusive Publishing – Making Information/Data Available to People and Machines”. While there are a number of contributors, James King is the primary author. James has an impressive pedigree and a lifetime of experience in making information available in an electronic format. Jim holds a Ph.D from CMU in Computer Science, serves ISO as Project Leader, ISO 32000 in TC171 SC2 WG8 while holding down his position with Adobe as Senior Principle Scientist, PDF Platform Architect.
The intent of this posting is to develop a deliverable designed to equip government agencies with a few simple, yet effective ideas to consider as they strive to create and publish information and data while serving a wide variety of diverse audiences.
In keeping with the spirit of open government, I am posting these ideas in draft form in an effort to be transparent and I hope to drive community participation and collaboration in taking the ideas to government knowing that the ideas are well vetted.
I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback.
Keep as eye out here. I will post an update to this entry, linking to Govloop next week!
