Yeah, folks, we're going there. The White House will be releasing their long-awaited Open Government Directive tomorrow at 11am EST, the plan to make government more transparent, participatory, and collaborative that was called for by President Obama on his first full day in office.

Tune in to the live video feed of the event, and then stop by here to chat the whole thing over.
