What’s Next for OpenGov?

What would you like to see next @The White House? At the Federal Agencies? State and Local Government? Worldwide?

My personal interest would be to see the ExpertNet project come to fruition @The White House and a few select government Agencies.

How about you? Priotities? Goals? Roadblocks?

I’m hearing ExpertNet was one of the projects that was directly impacted by recent staff turn-over (e.g. Beth Noveck leaving) but that the idea is not entirely dead yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰
