Federal CIO Steven VanRoekel and CTO Todd Park say open data will be the new default.

In this memorandum, the president directs each major federal agency in the United States to make two key services that American citizens depend upon available on mobile devices within the next 12 months and to make "applicable" government information open and machine-readable by default. President Obama directed federal agencies to do two specific things: comply with the elements of the strategy by May 23, 2013 and to create a "/developer" page on ever major federal agency's website.
