"One new feature of the plan is the inclusion of a citizen engagement directory, meant to provide members of the public with ways to contribute to NASA's goals and encourage the development of broader interest in science, technology, engineering and math education.

"Skytland stressed that Version 2.0 of the document is not meant to be a directive from on high. Rather, according to the program manager, it's designed as a model to encourage innovation and openness throughout the federal government.

"As part of the initiative, NASA is set to revamp its Web infrastructure, making it more accessible and transparent -- and ensuring that it uses open standards. The agency also maintains its own open-source code repository, accessible at code.nasa.gov."
