A Major Component of MAICgregator May Be Disappearing
The US Federal Government, through the Office of Management and Budget, is planning on shutting down a number of their star data transparency services by the end of June this year. This includes USASpending.gov, the site I use to search for Defense Department grants and contracts that are given to universities. This aspect of the project is key, as the display of these types of projects and their amounts always elicits gasps from the audience when we present the work. We will have to consider how to approach this impending demise to determine whether or not MAICgregator can continue in its current form, or if a different manifestation is perhaps needed.
