Law.Gov: America's Operating System, Open Source

Carl Malamud (Public.Resource.Org)
Average rating: ****.
(4.00, 3 ratings)

Law.Gov is a national effort to make all primary legal materials in the United States freely available in bulk, so the raw materials of our democracy can be used by for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Carl Malamud will discuss how this effort grew out of the last Government 2.0 Summit to become a national movement involving top government officials, major law schools, the nation’s law librarians, and a host of companies and researchers all dedicated to making the law more readily available.

Kevin, I think your mom does get it. You should have more faith in her! And, the kids on your lawn definitely get it. Being able to read the laws that govern what we’re allowed to do is an issue that matters to everybody.

In your discussion of “how this effort grew out of the last Government 2.0 Summit to become a national movement involving top government officials, major law schools, the nation’s law librarians, and a host of companies and researchers” I ask that you please explain why this matters to my mom, the kids on my lawn, and people who are out of work. I get it. Do they?
