GovTribe spent yesterday hawking our wares at Data Transparency 2013, sponsored by the Data Transparency Coalition. For those of you who aren't avid data wonks, this is the organization for folks who work with open government data. In addition to many other things, they advocate for the passage of the DATA Act. GovTribe believes strongly in the DATA Act and thinks you should too. Feel free to peruse it for yourself, but the basic gist is to mandate the government continue its transparency efforts by making their data structured and machine-readable. We slog through tons of data every day and trust us, this is a huge deal.
