Open Government on YouTube

We announced earlier this week the launch of the U.S. Government Channel on YouTube, but that was just one of the announcements to come out of Washington this week on transparency and open government. The White House also announced the Open Government initiative, an effort to get citizens engaged in policy-making by opening up government data and soliciting feedback from people online.

The two main projects launched with this initiative are and, sites where citizens can access public data and public comments on federal data and government operations.

The government has also partnered with us to launch a special YouTube channel called OpenGov, where they distribute video content on the topic of open government. You can learn more in two of their first YouTube videos, posted by Valerie Jarrett and Vivek Kundra:
