I recently interviewed Rock Regan,  the former President of NASCIO, about his experience as the CIO of Connecticut, how that job changed following 9/11 and the importance of data quality for state and local governments today. I thought the group members might find it interesting:

I've been working on a universal open directory of government contact information called DemocracyMap and I'd love to get some feedback on it. The service primarily focuses on things like the main phone number and website for a city or elected official, but it could expand beyond that. In particular, I'd love your feedback on the proposal in the Knight News Challenge which closes later today. You can see that and provide feedback at https://www.newschallenge.org/open/open-government/submission/democ...

There's also an article that provides a broader overview of this issue at http://blog.okfn.org/2013/03/15/the-biggest-failure-of-open-data-in...

Fed UC just posted an exclusive interview with Martin F. Horn, the former Commissioner of the New York City Department of Corrections and Department of Probation. 

During the interview, Martin discussed the latest trends and challenges in the corrections community and the ways that new technologies can help to improve today’s criminal justice system.

Are any local and municipal governments facing the challenges Martin discussed? Have they used VTC or other technologies to overcome them?

A new Q&A with Joe Pindell, Business Solution Architect supporting Federal, State, and Local Government with Pitney Bowes Software, discusses why the eligibility systems used by state and local government programs are inadequate in today’s budgetary and economic environment and how integrated and modernized systems could make the experience better for citizens while helping the government battle fraud, waste and abuse.

Code for America is asking the GovLoop community which app from the list of four would be most useful for your agency in terms of engagement. What do you think? Provide them feedback here: http://www.govloop.com/forum/topics/which-app-would-you-use-for-eng...
