Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld the rights of States to publish the pictures and other identifying information of sex offenders on the web. Utah has an online sex offender registry that is pretty well put together. I believe this is a great application of eGovernment. The Government owns the data, its a public record, and putting it on the web gives transparency in an area that could make a real difference in people's lives.
