Data.gov Could be “Tabled”

RRW is reporting that sources say Data.gov and other open gov sites could be turned off.

Today the Sunlight Foundation and Federal News Radio reported that the public projects Data.gov, USASpending.gov, Apps.gov/now, IT Dashboard and paymentaccuracy.gov as well as a number of internal government sites including Performance.gov, FedSpace and many of the efforts related the FEDRamp cloud computing cybersecurity effort would be taken offline in coming weeks due to budget cuts by Congress.

So the spring of open data websites has hit the autumn of budget cuts. Don’t worry about bigger budget issues as our government is totally on top of things. Remain calm, all is well…
