Listen for sure and voice your thoughts if you feel so moved. The deets:
If government — from your local school board to the U.S. Capitol — operated in secret, how much would you trust it? On the next Sound of Ideas, we’ll talk to open government advocates about the public’s right to know. We’ll offer expert advice on how to access public records and keep tabs on your government. Plus, we’ll explore how technology is helping to make government more transparent. Join us Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.

Full disclosure: This is, as many readers know, a topic of huge interest to me and for many years. I am spending time trying to contribute in anyway I can to help the TAPSummit succeed. Especially if you are an elected or maybe even more importantly, if you are a candidate for office this year, you should attend this event. You can read more about it and register for it here.
