You might want to address some of the skepticism directly. Conversations at the last few events I’ve participated in around crowdsourcing and government touched on the following concerns (more conceptual than management oriented, but might be helpful with regards to changing perspectives): 1) How do we protect constituents or processes from the majority (or those who participate in gov20)? 2) How can we archive communications between govt and public that happen on private spaces (i.e. twitter, facebook, etc)? What happens to the public record in these spaces? 3) When is the perspective of an expert is more valuable than the opinion of the crowd? 4) How/can these processes be scaled (most of the current examples are on the local level)? 5) How you use the crowd to solve actual problems?
