Re: NASA's view of openness
Thanks ANON1242219167129 for noting the difficulty of using NASA's portal.  You raise a common objection that agencies need to take more seriously: Which is, when they release information, tools, etc., they need to do a better job describing what they're releasing, and not just shoveling it into the public domain.

Re: NASA's view of openness
I would agree in principal, but this portal is virtually useless. It is difficult to browse, and the program descriptions do not provide enough information to determine whether a program might be applicable to any given situation. I believe a much more effective method would be to make these programs available under a free for non-commercial use open source license with a more comprehensive portal.

NASA's view of openness
NASA gets a lot of credit -- as it should -- for its willingness to share information, discoveries, and now its applications.  They're not alone.  NIH, for instance, insists that researchers working w/ NIH grants must be willing to share the findings to the public. But NASA sets a great example of how to do this in a way that gains visibility and goodwill for sharing the fruits of its mission.

Great news
This is great news. Hopefully it will make people realise all the good organisations like NASA do. It's much more than just scientific endeavours, it's one of the biggest developmental frontiers in the world. 

However, it does seem ironic Obama pushing for a more open government when he won't reveal how much data the NSA has stored on everyone.
