Changes and advancements in technology have made access to political and government information much easier for citizens. According to a memo sent by Barack Obama to the heads of executive departments and agencies, “Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset…. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public” (n.d., para. 2).
