You're familiar with a lot of the open government projects at the federal level.

You have sites like Recovery.gov, which tracks stimulus spending, and Data.gov. That site keeps tabs on various projects that agencies are working on.

David Moore, director of the Participatory Politics Foundation, says you can learn some things about open government at another level. Moore manages opengovernment.org, which checks the pulse of transparency at state, city and local levels. He also runs opencongress.org.
