Join the W3C eGovernment Interest Group and OASIS eGov

It seems a lot of the ideas being discussed here are, to some extent, reinventing the wheel. It would be foolish to develop standards and tools in isolation from the rest of the world for several reasons. For starters, much of the hard work has already been done and we don't need to go to the expense of repeating what has already been done.

Airport data sets

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 »

Interconnecting within other Parent & Citizen Associations

Parents, relatives and or community persons who contribute to the volunteer efforts to raise funds for their preferred school, would always benefit from the ideas and social inclusions from other parent & citizens associations within their zoned area, state and or federal surroundings. Being slightly isolated in a rural setting eliminates opportunities for the parents and communities to encompass similar ideas and benefits ...more »

Better interaction with public!

Given the adoption rate of social media and web 2.0 concepts in communicating with people en mass, in my humble opinion the government could continuously release non-sensitive data to the public and showcase some of the most useful applications. Furthermore, the public voice needs to be heard on developing themes on what could be done with the data. Applications addressing these themes need to be used as a two way communication ...more »
