New Mega-Goverment Site (U.S. specific)

The United States Government has launched a website designed to give one-stop access to the whole .gov domain called FirstGov.

Features include: a robust search engine and Yahoo-style directory access. While the directories will be helpful to those that aren't familiar with how much information the U.S. publishes online, the real thrill for me is the search engine. Just try it!

The government has a massive amount of interesting and useful information online. This site has been eagerly anticipated by librarians (such as myself) because the task of sifting through the 20,000+ goverment sites is often an exercise in frustration. This is a milestone in the availability of government documents (and anything else on a .gov site--you'd be surprised!) to the general public

I hope that other members of the Kuro5hin community find this helpful. I normally don't engage in the practice of MLP, but this struck me as a perfect link for a site that concerns itself with the connections between culture and technology.
