Fixing the Paradox of Government

I really enjoyed the presentation by Tim O’Reilly on “Technology & 21st Century Government

He begins with what he says is the great paradox of government “It’s too big & costs too much. Yet there are problems that the private sector can’t solve alone”

Which leads to the thought – “What if we felt about our government like we feel about our iPhones?”

To achieve such a goal, he shared 4 major lessons from innovative government programs:

Lesson 1: Get People excited about Government – Reinvent the Citizen Experience

Lesson 2: Use Data to Drive Decisions

Lesson 3: Create an architecture of participation

Lesson 4: Government Should be a Platform
