Madison’s City Open Data Initiative Introduced

One of the most progressive city open data policies in the country is being introduced in Madison today.

This will improve government transparency and function, while at the same time unleash valuable city data to developers.

This “Government 2.0″ initiative embodies the progressive and tech-focus of Madison as a whole, and underscores the City’s commitment to strengthening the tech community. Read more here.
