Obama Administration features DataSF
The Obama Administration recognizes Mayor Newsom's initiative to improve transparency and access to city data. On the White House blog, the Administration writes: “Last week, San Francisco launched DataSF.org. Modeled on our very own Data.gov, DataSF.gov provides easy access to a clearinghouse of structured, raw and machine-readable government data. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said he hopes the city’s coders and entrepreneurs will use the data to create new innovative services ‘never imagined within the walls of government’”.
