Okay, before I dive in, a few things.
1) Sorry for the lack of posts last week. Life's been hectic. Between Code for America, a number of projects and a few articles I'm trying to get through, the blogging slipped. Sorry.
2) I'm presenting on Open Data and Open Government to the Canadian Parliament Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics Committee today - more on that later this week
3) I'm excited about this post
When it comes to…Continue
If I had to come up with one word to describe the promise of Cloud Computing, that word would be simplicity. Yes, there has been a lot of discussion, pro and con, about moving to the Cloud and all of the implications behind it, much of it fear based. This YouTube video says it all... http://tiny.cc/9rrnh. In any case, security fears are the biggest reason for the mass hesitation to embrace the cloud, but if done judiciously, moving to the cloud could be the…Continue

As the first month of the Future Learning Experience Project comes to a close, so too does our explicit focus on definitions. Let me take a few sentences to recap what exactly we defined in the last month:
As I wrote in a earlier posting, I coined the term collaborgagement while attending a session at Content.gov. John Newton (Alfresco’s CTO) commented that the next generation of enterprise IT tools need to serve the middle of the enterprise – the domain of the knowledge workers. These tools need to support collaboration, knowledge management, and just-in-time sharing of expertise. Even…Continue
January definitely seems to be the month for the Federal Government as it relates to IT jobs is in the news. A couple of weeks ago I read about the upswing in Federal hiring as it relates to IT workers. Two examples:
Do you know the difference between a Transfer and a Reassignment in the Federal Government? There are important distinctions between the two and every Federal employee should understand the differences in these two actions before seeking one or the other.

We’re excited about a fresh new look for OpenSF, a team blog dedicated to innovation, collaboration and transparency in San Francisco government. OpenSF was originally launched by Jay Nath, director of innovation in the City’s Department of Technology, and his team members were the primary contributors. For about a year, I’ve been writing regularly for OpenSF, highlighting social media projects by the City Attorney’s…Continue

Mark Drapeau (Washington, DC) –
The Federal government has made a good deal of progress toward being more transparent, collaborative, and participatory during the two years since President Obama took office. However, despite great strides, government practitioners’ use of social media is not very sophisticated, does not take advantage of the latest tactics and tools, and does not necessarily improve the dialogue around big issues citizens really care about –…Continue

We’re face-to-face again with our love-hate relationship with democratic principles. While politicians, pundits and everyday citizens love to extol the value of participatory governance in the United States and around the world, our foreign policy has focused on American ‘interests’ rather than democratic principles. It’s not surprising this week that Egyptian President Mubarak’s administration is under siege…after decades of democratic neglect and dictatorial power. If Tunisia is followed…Continue

In principle, the best decisions are made when the answer is self-evident to everyone. When a group of reasonable people have a shared goal and they freely share information about the current situation and options for achieving that goal, they are very likely to come to a shared conclusion about what to do.
When the decision making process allows all participants to see all…Continue

For the last several months, people have caught me spouting off on Twitter (and elsewhere, like DevLearn’s General Session) that identity — my identity, in particular — is socially defined. Now it’s time for the rubber to meet the road.
I’ve created a Wiki page (using Wikispaces, because they make use of OpenID) to be defined by the collective with this goal in-mind: if this experiment works, this…Continue
