I can’t believe you don’t have @carlmalamud on this list. He is THE pioneer in US government transparency. He put the SEC online (from the outside) in 1993, and is still fighting the good fight at http://public.resource.org.
And you’ve also left of the other pioneer, Tom Steinberg and the folks at http://mysociety.com, creators of theyworkforyou.com, fixmystreet.com, and other pioneering Gov2.0 applications in the UK. They tweet under the moniker @mysociety.

Thanks for including me. :) I’m delighted to see that I know most of these folks and have heard of most of the others, but I still picked up a couple new people to follow.
Thanks very much for the kind mention. Follow those who follow those — leverage the network effect for building a valuable network.
Thanks for the inclusion of both myself and GovTwit! Like Jeffrey, I found a couple of new folks to follow – and to add to the directory!

Thanks for posting this list. Great to see so many leaders on this issue all in one place. I would suggest, humbly, adding myself as well! @you2gov :)
Hey thanks for being included! Always appreciate positive feedback and the opportunity to connect with others.
How about the NY State Senate CIO @NYSenateCIO? His team has created the most advanced legislative website, made the argument for the NY Senate to be the first state legislature to adopt creative commons and they have unprecedented open.nysenate.gov where their code is placed into the public domain.
I will back 100% Tim on having Tom Steinberg and mysociety up here
They are leading the pack at least in Europe…
We at best try to copy the best practice he establishes … And he is even helping us do that too !
I would also recommend you have a look beyond the US … loads of things happening out there !

Good short list; will you be expanding and categorizing by region/state, private vs public sector, PR etc ? I’d like to be added and have some to add if you expand.
