Making Online Govt. Docs Stable and Citable

A recent podcast by Jon Udell featured his interview with Silona Bonewald, who represents the League of Technical Voters. Bonewald talked about her efforts to develop a system whereby government documents can have permanent URLs down to the paragraph level (not just the document/web page level). Doing so would make it much easier to have conversations about government documents (think of the conversations, for example, that arise around specific pieces of legislation being drafted).

This slide presentation (with audio!) gives a good overview of the Citability.org project that Bonewald is working on.
