Hi Faye – I keep saying that our moms (and dads) are precisely the people we should be engaging to learn about their experience with “open government.” I use the term “hyper-local” to describe where I think this movement needs to go. We need to be raising the issues you cite above: so how do we get this information to people more effectively so that they can participate more actively?

AND I love the idea of resource-sharing, which seems to be a prevalent theme this week…as evidenced by these two forum questions:

Tools, Wikis for City to City Sharing of Sustainability Policy?


Resource Sharing Among Departments
