OhMyGov! wants better government -- a more creative, more efficient, smarter government! So we set out to do the unthinkable: build a news and information site about government that was both interesting and fun to read. We offer an entertaining mix of "good gov" stories about public sector innovations and advances (yep, imagine that!) and comforting "bad gov" tales of government embarrassments and outrages. In short, we cover anything that makes you say OhMyGov!
OhMyGov! was founded by 3 guys looking to make a difference — an experienced federal executive, a motivated government contractor and writer, and a best-selling investigative journalist.
