Open Government presents a direction that raises a couple of fundamental questions.
One, how is it possible that as this Open direction moves forward we still see these kinds of media stories/editorials? Are media being told of the evolving Openness? (we see just one reference in all the documentation to traditional ‘media’.)

Two, presuming that communication effects are made and are successful in engaging citizens to access what is/will be provided, will there be mechanisms for them (informed and casual readers as well as media) to ask the questions that will result from exposure to all this data and information? What changes in resources and systems are contemplated to manage what can be anticipated to be an avalanche of queries?
