ICA retreats to the "deep web"
You could chalk up as lack of effort, but the ICA does have a lot of documents... documents that the pubic has literally spent $millions to produce. Has anyone added up what all these reports (oh yeah, nobody knows about the reports any longer) cost to produce Yet all that work over the years has just vanished. In fact, they used to make such documents readily available digitally, but no longer. So we are moving backwards when it comes to transparency and open-ness. Moving backwards pretty rapidly actually, at least when it comes to the ICA.
So... for the 5 folks actually interested in such things (Hi, Bram)... here is my proxy ICA web page with as many documents as I could scrounge up. A work in progress of course, but I'll get there. Feel free to email me if you have any other documents to add. Just ICA documents please. If you think this is all de-minimus, check out the last document I have there: the appropriations request for the current fiscal year. Is it worth a half million dollars this year to.... (fill in the verb of choice). If nothing else, I bet if sent over the school district, a half million could hire more than a few teachers this year.
and can someone.. anyone.. please tell the ICA how to fix their screwed up DNS/domain redirect. It's embarrassing (and isn't the 'new' Pittsburgh all about the information tech-nol-o-gee?) They are paying for web services as well I bet. You gotta wonder how much $$$ they spend on the web page, not we can tell from what is on the web page.
