I don't really think the entire federal government of the US is going to 
become uniform and transparent.

And if it did, there is still the need to map back into the bad old days 
of non-uniformity and non-transparency.

To say nothing of the vast areas of darkness in financial sectors.

Anyway, thought I should pass it along. I am sure there is going to be 
lots of work, some of it useful.

Hope everyone is having a great day!


PS: Other transparency initiatives?
