White House crowdsources open-government playbook

In writing a new tipsheet for agencies about engaging the public, the White House is practicing what it's preaching by asking the public to help write a guide for agencies on ways to engage the public. The playbook stems from the administration's most recent pledge to give the public a greater say in how the federal government operates.

It plans to release in January an edited version of the playbook that agencies can use and further refine.
