FedFlix: redistributing the government videos to the public

Carl Malamud at www2010I just watched Carl Malamud discuss his work to open government data and resources to the public domain. One of his projects, FedFlix, takes government tapes from archives, digitizes, adds , and finally releases the content to the public domain.

Carl also discussed his work with releasing legal documents to the public domain to allow all citizens access to law resources. Open Government data has been an ongoing talk at this conference. I’m looking forward to seeing more mashups and effects of this transparency.

Here’s a sample video that is relevant for the recent incidents. It’s a mine safety video.
