We believe that online video is an important and growing medium for engaging with our government at every level: state, city, local, and others. Unfortunately, state legislatures generally not make video of their proceedings (e.g., legislative actions like votes and committee hearings) available in ways that meet the community-generated Principles of Open Government Data.
Editorial note: as far as what's out there now, as of this writing: there is no official site of online video for bills in the Maryland state legislature of which we're aware, but they do make audio available online via an almost-marvelously behind-the-times webpage. So at the moment, a lot of digging and research is still required to find video of MD legislative proceedings, e.g. committee hearings and votes. What a shortcoming. '
In the future, our goal is to aggregate useful video about every bill, issue, and member of state government here on OpenGovernment, all freely-licensed and available in open standards, to share & remix -- see how you can help.
Until video of state government is liberated by its primary source, we're using the free and open-source Miro Community software to create a crowdsourced hub of publicly-available video content for branches of state government.Watch Maryland Videos at the
