Gov 2 Summit - FixMyStreet

mySociety group from UK.....does sites like FixMyStreet and WhatDoTheyKnow

Report problems in your street. Fix rate is about 50%

WhatDoTheyKnow - archives of FOIA requests and answers

TheyWorkForYou - politicians, what they said, and what they do

Lessons to look for -
1 - Combine services that normal people want with transparency even if they aren't interested in transparency

2 - Don't present your site as a site about data. Not about data...don't lecture them about it

3 - Good projects can be described in only a few words

4 - Coding is quicker than consensus - Clay Johnson

-Build FixMyStreet in this country
-Let the people collaborate and talk on gov sites...
