Open source intelligence agency

A new MIT project called Open Government Information Awareness is off to a fast start in its mission to aggregate information about the U.S. government and it’s “going on” – to help “citizens understand the complexities of their government.”
I plan on keeping tabs on this site to see how it works out. It would great to “turn the tables” on government and keep tabs on them – and if it can all be done while my lazy ass sits at a computer, all the better.

“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right… an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the characters and conduct of their rulers.” – John Adams
