Also in the News: Google chief wants easier access to government information

Government information is difficult to find for most users of Web search engines, but Obama adviser Eric Schmidt, Google's chief executive officer, wants to change that, the Washington Post reported.

Making government databases more visible to search engines would require agencies to make each of them separate Web pages and then provide a list of those sites’ Web addresses to the search engines. That’s possible, but government information technology specialists say significant resources and costs would be involved, while others say the Google push is aimed primarily at making more money for the company, the Post said.
