“Sweet GovTweets” Tues 7 April, 2009 edition

Apologies for errors in advance:

@sradick: A challenge to the attendees of #gov20camp (http://tinyurl.com/c7ce2q) #gov20

@krishnan: Redhat tries to push Open Government using Open Source and Open Formats. http://bit.ly/3anYNy #opensource #opengov

@conniecrosby: in Open Government session at #mesh09 #opengov with @remarkk

@conniecrosby: @danielrose why we use visual models to explain abstracts-words carry baggage; getting rid of words gets rid of assumptions #mesh09 #opengov

@citymark: #opengov assignment – communicate the concept of open gov’t using only shapes and lines

@josephdee: #opengov at #mesh09 is underway with @remarkk and @danielrose http://post.ly/FZm

@conniecrossby:
#opengov #mesh09 with @remarkk http://remarkk.com & @danielrose http://omakasegroup.com -have put together #ChangeCamp & #AgendaCamp for TVO

@conniecrosby: @remarkk: What meaning & content is in the word “Open” that we want to unbundle? What is so compelling about this idea? #mesh09 #opengov

@conniecrosby:
@remarkk: #opengov shares values with things like Open Source & open web, but we don’t really understand what those values are #mesh09

@conniecrosby: @remarkk: Open web idea – anyone can connect to anyone. Also the idea of open data (Tim Berners-Lee) #opengov #mesh09

@conniecrosby: @remarkk: Why do some people believe in Open Government at all? We see what is possible with co-creation e.g. Wikipedia #opengov #mesh09

@conniecrossby: @remarkk: (Power + Legitimacy) – Legitimacy seen by people inside the system – often by force of traditional practice #opengov #mesh09

@acroll: #opengov #mesh09 “Accountable” = called to account by an audience _that_is_outside_their_own_system_of_power_ Kangaroo courts fail

@conniecrossby
: @remarkk: Efficiency & effectiveness-taxpayers expect value for their money. Radical transparency is averse to risk-taking. #opengov #mesh09

@josephfung Interesting Question: would you prefer an “efficient” or an “open” government? #mesh09 #opengov

@rochlatinsky: what are some examples of governments being open, want to share with #opengov #mesh09

@josephfung: Interesting: 211 (www.211ontario.ca) like 411 brought up as an example of open governement #opengov #mesh09

@silanthia: Reasons 2 NOT jump on Twitter bandwagon 4 companies. Some really good advice 4 everyone #opengov #gov20 #sm http://bit.ly/IfS1e

@josephdee: Our #viz at #opengov workshop with @acroll (who is a friggin rockstar) #mesh09 http://post.ly/Fb4

@curvezilla: http://sunshinereview.org nice site for Govt. Transparency. #gov20 #opengov

@josephfung: @canstageco #mesh09 #opengov ideally you are right. Some in office may disagree 😉 At least Ontario ombudsman seems to want more openness.

I noticed it was very bare bones myself and I wasn’t sure what the purpose of it was. I think it is a start and hopefully they too will catapult themselves into web 2.0 soon :).
