Among the principles set out in the memorandum:
Government should be transparent.
Government should be participatory.
Government should be collaborative.
The memo, including these principles, of course, merely sets a tone; it doesn't create any legal rights or responsibilities. But the memo also directs the OMB to develop recommendations for an "Open Government Directive" that will contain specific measures for agency action. We'll post when these come out.
