Hi! A good news from Seoul.

Seoul city government recently launched a platform sharing administrative documents and worksheets, even while in process, to the public.
They include almost every document, minor and major: ones like vacation request to budget consultation. (except personal info and confidential documents)
The documents and worksheets are available under CC licenses.

The current Mayor of Seoul, Won-Soon Park has a career background of non-profit org.
He initiated his Sharing Seoul plan this year, and eagerly opening public data.
(Maybe he's familiar to some of you. He's been to CC Asia-Pacific Conference in 2010 and gave a speech about fundraising.) 

Following is an article on this service:

I heard that this is the very first case for a city opening every administrative documents to its citizens.
I think this is a very meaningful step for cities. Happy to share this news.
