How might we improve the way citizens and governments interact?

KnightFoundation - Crowdfunding to unlock open data - How do we make it sustainable for agencies to open up datasets? Particularly public data on paper, scans, PDFs, etc... Use crowdfunding to unlock the data and engage more stakeholders in the process. In the end, the data is open to all.

Far too much information released to the public in the US (and abroad) remains trapped, inaccessible in aggregate because it is locked in scans, PDFs, image files, etc... Not machine-readable data.
