The Business.gov Community hit over 15,000 members early
last week. This marks a great milestone
for Business.gov and the Open Government Initiative.

President Barak Obam;s first executive action was the Open
Government Memorandum. It calls for the government to be transparent,
participatory, and collaborative. When
the Business.gov community launched in early 2009, it quickly became a way for
small business owners to collaborative with each other and the government.
Registered members increased three fold in the past year, growing an average of
30 members a day.

Not only has the Community grown to over 15,000, but two
members, BizResearcher
and phanio,
have earned the rank of Super Contributor. Members receive ranks based on
number of logins, number of posts, and overall time online.
