ABC Pool

I almost missed this one, because it's been mentioned a few times in the Taskforce materials. But it definitely deserves a nomination. Pool (http://www.pool.org.au) is the ABC's online collaborative media space. It's doing an excellent job of bringing Web 2.0 and interactive creativity to the national broadcaster, opening up opportunities for members of the public to interact with and contribute to ABC programming, and ...more »

Pia Waugh and Senator Kate Lundy

Well I'll start the ball rolling by nominating Pia Waugh and Senator Kate Lundy for their series of Publicsphere conferences.

 

The Publicsphere conferences have been a very interesting and to my mind successful experiment in participatory democracy. It has opened a new avenue for people to get involved in Policy development and has already shown the way for others (witness the NSWSphere event).

openaustralia.org

I simply cannot think of a better, more timely or better implemented example of Government 2.0. This concept- and the people behind it - embody both the spirit and reality of the natural evolution of the public's relationship to it's government. OpenAustralia.org is quite simply one of the most important innovations in democracy this country has seen in recent memory and totally deserves to be recognized.

National Archives of Australia

The Archives has consistantly looked to provide web 2.0 style web products that provide the Australian people with direct opportunities to access great info (such as their recent mashup on Google and war records) and their photo wall which invited people to add personal stories to historical photos. Of course, the archives dogged evangalising on the importance of metadata within records has been brilliant. The record ...more »

Mosman Municipal Council

I don't know if you're only looking for Federal examples, but one best practice example of Web 2.0 use at a local government level we noticed a few months ago is the Mosman Municipal Council.

Gov 2.0 and Public Sector Change

Hi Steve Davies here - Current APS public servant, previously S.A and N.T. I am new to the taskforce space, but due to my work over the last 9 years far from new to the concepts and technology. Due to the work I have done over the past 9 years - and my 30 years plus as a public servant - one of the things that concerns me is the gap between Gov 2.0 and what happens within Agencies. If we don't get the internal wheels ...more »
