2011 is almost over and, with the promise of new year, it's time to look back at the year that was. Here on Govloop, the community has already been discussing the issue of the year. So far, the threat of a government shutdown has led the list. A related issue --"austerity" -- was the story that defined government in 2011 in Chris Dorobek's poll.
Do you agree? Why or why not? What was the most undercovered story in the intersection of government, technology and society?
While I've asked the same question on Quora and Google+, I'm guessing the Govloop community will have plenty to say about what the most important Gov 2.0 or open government story of 2011 was -- and why.
I'm all ears.
