Where are we?

We could be so much further on.

Hope

Was this the moment it all changed?

Office of Public Engagement http://whitehouse.gov/ope/

“ Our commitment to openness means more than simply informing the American people about how decisions are made. It means recognizing that government does not have all the answers, and that public officials need to draw on what citizens know.”

Overheard at breakfast

“ ... get out there on Twitter and Facebook and whatever.”

A big deal

Not here.... yet.

Where are we now?

Just talk with us! http://www.flickr.com/photos/joeshlabotnik/305410323/

“ ...in the hyperconnected world, engagement is predicated on understanding and utilising social media.” Jason Ryan State Services Commission

Best possible outcomes

FTW!

They already know the way

Open data

Information wants to be free(ish)

“ Government data prepared for public reuse should be offered in multiple-formats, be machine-readable and adhere as closely as possible to lightweight standards.” Vivek Kundra US Government CIO http://www.gcn.com/Articles/2009/04/29/Kundra-talks-data-gov.aspx

Free data has superpowers

Portable, sharable, managed data
