The key question: How might we improve the way citizens and

governments interact?   On the News Challenge:

Through this contest, we hope to

help extend the spirit of open gov and to catalyze partnerships between

hackers, civic innovators, governments, journalists and others. We also want to

drive more open government wins in local communities, particularly beyond big

cities. And we want to reinforce the idea that the promise of open government

cuts across ideological, demographic and geographic lines.
