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…
