Knowledge is power

The latest project from the MIT Media Lab is called Government Information Awareness:


To empower citizens by providing a single, comprehensive, easy-to-use repository of information on individuals, organizations, and corporations related to the government of the United States of America.

To allow citizens to submit intelligence about government-related issues, while maintaining their anonymity. To allow members of the government a chance to participate in the process.

It sounds like a very good idea to me, in these days of increasing government secrecy (and increasing citizen ignorance).
