Transparency at the NAC

Editor's note: Presentations from the 5 February session of the NASA Advisory Council (NAC) meeting in Cocoa Beach are now online. This is amazing. The previous NAC management would drag their feet, often taking months to post anything - and that's if they ever actually posted anything on their own volition. Usually it required FOIA requests and lots of complaints before they'd respond. Looks like "transparency" to me!
