Hmmm ! Double Http was the issue all right (Thanks John) Though waiting the hour or two alllowed instant access as oppossed to ssslllooowww time.

Anyway - not yet as interesting as the release claimed. A lot of 'heavy traffic' sites and work in progress.

Worth keeping an eye on its progress I think.

Sorry I couldn't check it out before I posted - Ah well !

As posted, you've got a "double" http:// up above. Have you tried it without the "extra" - or via the blue-clicky.

I might note that MIT has a rather exotic security system for their student web, and it is possible there may be an "exclude locations" block - if you're coming in from a suspect region. Are you a spy????

I had no problem getting in immediately to copy the URL, or to check the link I posted, although they did indicate heavy traffic - probably as a result of the newsbit.

Still no joy here - Traffic must be heavy - I'll get back to it later.

Open Gov Awareness works ok for me. There is a note that "due to heavy traffic advanced features are not available."

Howya folks,

Browsing some previous threads and their links brought up this news story (and link)from the launch of a new website to keep tab's on the US Govt. Thought some Mudcatters might wish to peruse it.
Supposedly launched Friday, Curiously 24 hours later I haven't been able to access it.

Anybody else able to access the link ?

The news story :http://www.indystar.com/print/articles/5/055645-6705-031.html

And the link : http://http://opengov.media.mit.edu
