Hi John...In August 2011, you wrote an article about Using Dashboards in Government that featured itdashboard.gov.  I see that site is no longer being updated, and all of its content has been "archived." Do you know what the future of itdashboard.gov is?  Was the initiative terminated?

I posted your article "From Here to There" as a discussion in the Enabling Collaboration group. I hope you don't mind, it seems a way to thread the needle to sew this cloth into a suitable garment. See "Some Background on the Directive".

Hi John, from what I've heard, HR 404 will be reintroduced in the next congress with all of the changes made during it's first run. I've been told it's watered down a bit now, but better than nothing. A number of customer service leaders are worried about the burden it might create... definitely worth keeping an eye on it. I support agencies as my full-time job, so I'm hoping to keep the Customer Service Group current and busy. Thanks for joining. Your input will always be valued.

Hi John, I work for the federal government's USA Services E-Government Initiative doing research and managing a couple federal government groups related to improving customer service. I just started a GovLoop group to help network those of us with an interest in that area. http://www.govloop.com/group/governmentcustomerservice. I hope you'll take a look. Collaboration is increasingly coming up in my conversations about citizens' relationships with government. I'd love to have your input into what I'm doing sometime. Have a great day!
