Government Information Awareness (GIA) is a Web site dedicated to making it easy for U.S. citizens to know more about their government and is somewhat the reverse of the government's Terrorism Information Awareness (TIA) program, which aims at knowing more about its citizens. GIA is the inspiration of Ryan McKinley and other graduate students at Massachusett Institute of Technology's Media Lab. The student team hopes to create a self-sustaining community of users that contribute to and evaluate the quality of others' contributions to a common information pool about the U.S. government.

Initially, the GIA Web site is seeded with a database that describes the Federal government's organization and elected and appointed officials. GIA's creators hope that users will contribute additional information and that eventually the site will become "the Google of government."
