Open Government Data Initiative is Live!

The project I have been working on for close to a year has been announced today – Open Government Data Initiative (OGDI). The road was long and winding but satisfying. The outcome of the project is a set of software components, soon provided as free, open source on CodePlex, helping government organizations to publish data on the Web and provide interactive and programmatic access to it using broadly adopted open protocols and formats from practically any technology and platform under the sun. The other cool thing about OGDI is that it is a cloud application. It stores data in and runs on Windows Azure. Please take a look at the site and let us know what you think.[ ?posts_id=2082842&dest=-1]
