Greetings Dave,

IP'ers might be interested to know that Public.Resource.Org archivist
and IP contributor Carl Malamud is the target of a concerted effort by
the "yes we scan" committee to be named as 'public printer of the US'
- the head of the Government Printing Office.

Co-chaired by Paul Vixie, Lawrence Lessig, and David Halperin, the
committee ( at http://yeswescan.org/ ) has launched an online
signature-gathering effort in hopes that Carl would be considered for
the position.  Carl's transparency and public records dissemination
work is long-running and quite revolutionary.  It's probably fitting
that the committee is collecting signatures and endorsement online
too, including thorugh "signature bundlers" - like BoingBoing:
