I received an email on 2017-02-27 promoting the March For Science.
One of the arguments was as follows:
It appears that the Trump administration has removed terabytes of data from open.whitehouse.gov http://open.whitehouse.gov/ replacing it with Trump administration news and press releases. While it says “Check back soon for new data” the removal of this data would be significant set back in science and computing. This situation is well worth monitoring.
Did terabytes of data get removed from open.whitehouse.gov in January or February 2017? If so, why, and is there any mirror/backup of it somewhere else?
