OpenGovRadio (1/26/10): OGD Compliance - Questions & Comments

I will be hosting Open Government Radio this next Tuesday, January 26th, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EST.  You can listen to it live (or later) on your computer or PDA, and you can call-in with your questions or comments to (917) 388-4210. 

Here's the show's description:

The first deadline for federal agencies to comply with the Open Government Directive was last Friday, January 22, 2010 (i.e., "high-value datasets"). How did they do? Let's talk about it.

Also, the next OGD deadline is February 6, 2010 for each agency to set up its own "OpenGov" webpage. Some have already done it. What do you think of them? What could make them better?

And, now, each federal agency has a "New Media Director".  But what is that role, exactly, with respect to their agency's "OpenGov Planning Team"?  And, who IS in charge?  We'll be discussing these topics, along with the ones that YOU want to talk about.

PLEASE NOTE:  It would be very helpful if -- before the show -- you use the Comment section, below, to raise a question or comment (along with web-addresses) that you would like discussed on the show..  That way, I can see, along with everyone else, the links to what you are talking about, along with a "heads-up" on the topic.

Hi Stephen,

An article on the Huffington Post today identifies 14 executive agencies and departments, plus DOD, EPA, and a few other offices as being required to post three new data sets to I don't know how they determined those specific agencies as having to abide by the OGD. I'm a bit confused about which agencies and departments the OGD applies to. Can you offer any clarification?

Here is the link to the Huffington Post article (the part I mention is at the very end):
