, the Italian central government's first (or at least one of the first) government 2.0 project, has quickly gained a certain international visibility. After two showcases with the European Commission (EUPS20
) and a French exchange of ideas
, last week it was the World Bank
, following up on an interview
I had given to the NYC-based blog Betterverse.
As it becomes clear that the Internet is great at producing public goods
, the conversation on e-government 2.0 goes global. Ideas circulate smoothly among us Europeans (the EUPS20
group, or Headshift
, recently acquired by an American company), Americans (Sunlight Foundation
) and Asians (Futuregov
), and it seems there is a good deal of mutual trust out there. As I write, a bunch of us is cooperating at producing a collaborative declaration
to be presented at the European Union ministerial conference on ICT in Malmo, Sweden, in November. Maybe there is hope.
