Ok, so Open Gov is coming into the government in bigger and better ways — a lot of it thanks to the Obama Administration. Kudos.
Now, the bad side: lots of people are pissed at Obama. If Open Gov becomes too associated with Obama and he loses 2 years from now, Open Gov may suffer a serious setback. In fact, Open Gov could suffer as soon as the Congressional Midterms.
So what’re you going to do about it? Well, it’s time you starting thinking about Open Gov Backup Plans.
In short, we need to ensure Open Gov becomes at least partially infused in federal culture. How this will happen, I honestly don’t know…but we don’t have a lot of time.
Start thinking people.
