8. CHANGELOG

In software, a Changelog is a list of changes from version to version of a program. This appendix lists changes in the revised editions of the book. s/ . . . / . . . / notation indicates a replacement of text from the first to the second.

1.1 — June 2012

  • Chapter 1, revised to reflect that Clay Johnson was not Sunlight Foundation’s first labs director. That was Greg Elin, in 2006. In a footnote, added how Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno cited a Sunlight Foundation study. In the web version, the link to the Sunlight Foundation website had a typo.

  • Also in that chapter, removed “farmers’ market locations” as one of HHS’s datasets — it was from the USDA. Added FDA recalls instead. Removed the footnote to http://health.data.gov as it no longer exists and added a note that I worked on its replacement, http://www.healthdata.gov.

  • Chapter 3, s/three/four/ in the introduction. Section 3.1, s/riled on/citicized/.

  • Chapter 4, noted that NH HB 418 was signed into law, added references to OK HB 2197 and CA SB 1002, and added more on NYC’s Int 0029-2010. Made my outlook more positive in light of the three new state/local laws enacted since I first wrote that section.

  • Section 6.1, added the case of Rep. @DennyRehberg deleting his tweets to appear on Politwoops.

  • Section 7.7, noted that NH HB 418 was signed into law, added references to OK HB 2197 and CA SB 1002.
