If you are like me, you are looking outside at the changing leaves and wondering how it is already October, but alas fall is here and that means end of year retrospectives are just around the corner. (You can check out the 2013 Innovations Guide).
But before we can count down all the best and brightest innovation in government, we need to uncover those hidden innovations.
That’s where you come in, my dear GovLoop friends! What great progress or challenges have your seen in government in the past 365 days? What innovations have caused you to look at government in a new way?
Here are a few ideas I am working on to help get the creative juices flowing – the past year brought us the General Service Administration’s 18F – a user-centric digital service group, focused on the interaction between government and the people and businesses it serves. It also brought us Burlington, Vermont – a city run on 100% renewable energy. And 2014 wouldn’t be complete without talking about the Internet of Things. The federal government set up the first NIST standards for IoT and state, and local governments also got in on the action.

Thanks so much for your help!
