Competition a good idea - however the note on what US Gov is trying to do under Obama, seems a bit convoluted and disjointed.
I do not think we should be debating (or "competitioning") Gov 2.0. Let's just accept that new technology will find its place in our lives!
What we should be doing is encouraging Rudd and Gillard to get behind a Gov2.0 debate on a key issue. And what is more key at the moment than our Medical/Health future.
I see Premier Kennealey (NSW) has a BIG meeting today with heath professionals to discuss the Fed's health proposal.
This debate should be extended and opened up to all stakeholders and not just in NSW.
It is a major Federal/States issue that does need to be resolved for our well-being.
Let's somehow encourage premiers (departments), the feds and particularly Health to get involved and get a proper, open debate going.
Gov2.0 - let's encourage the use of better mechansim as part of this important debate.
It is not hard to come up with this idea BUT do we have the innovative spirit to run with it and make it a success. Its success will depend on us finding a "champion" at the top level (be that Rudd or Abbott). Oh where is our Obama!
