In that document,  government officials set progressive and aggressive deadlines to keep digital government moving in a more citizen-centric direction. Those deadlines should come to fruition on May 23, 2013.

"Goodnight Sweet Possum." Participatory Urbanism the Boston Way

As we become an increasingly urban species the challenges related to growing numbers of people occupying finite spaces becomes an acute concern. The friction generated as we rub elbows can make us all uncomfortable.

Digital diplomacy in Paris – workshop and panel

Last week the embassy of Israel in Paris, France, hosted an international workshop on the digital diplomacy. It was first such experience for us in the Israeli embassy, but what I learnt from our guests during the workshop was that it was also the case for many of them. While diplomats discuss this topic with their counterparts occasionally, the idea of workshop was to create the platform of professional discussion and exchange between diplomats, web-specialists, journalists and…

Sift Through Big Data to Find Real Insight

There is a ton of talk today about “big” data.  The concept comes from our ever increasing ability to collect, store, and manage larger and larger datasets full of vast amounts of information – customer information, habits, purchasing patterns, social media visits, and so on.  Unfortunately, I think many private and public organizations have become much like the Once-ler in Dr. Seuss’ Lorax:

I had to grow bigger so bigger I got. I biggered my factory, I biggered my roads,…

Why the White House Belongs at the Top of the Digital IQ Rankings

While gazing at the Public Sector Digital IQ Rankings, I was happy to see that the White House was ranked No. 2. The rankings commented that "From open-sourced contests to balance the budget to weekly presidential addresses on YouTube, the White House leads by example."

I couldn't agree more. I was very impressed when I discovered the White House's efforts to allow for citizen engagement. This includes partnering with Monster to give the public the opportunity to…

Digital helps Government reduce costs... really?

I find myself thinking about Government’s desire to reduce costs by 'going digital.'

It's as though the very notion of something being online instantly results in reduced effort and cost and provides a useful and usable service to Citizens.

In recent years, Government has seen digital as a means of reducing 'avoidable contact' - that type of contact that Government might not have to have with its Citizens face-to-face or on the telephone if it could service them…
