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.
