All,

 

It at the present time is indeed a laundry list but a list that we can cross walk to our efforts and tasks ahead. I think there is a great opportunity from a US perspective to match our efforts with the goals of the Obama administration. 

 

EGOV in the US has foundered for some time and been subject to the bureaucracy and priorities of the current administration. Many gains have been made but as we all know, there is far more that needs to be done in order to move the egov agenda forward and ensure the citizens are benefiting in getting the services and information they need.

 

The Obama campaign can be used as a good example for how to engage many in the processes and day to day work of the government. My hope is that the Administration is able to move what they have learned and incorporate into their direction forward.

 

I don't think there has been a better opportunity for egov in America. The administration that will be moving in understands how to leverage technology and the web to achieve their goals.

 

I had noted some time ago the importance of mobile technologies and flexible and compatible interfaces and data. The use of services and technologies ie Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In and more proves that there is an audience and a user base for government information via those platforms and technologies. Platforms and technologies that we need to incorporate into our next year once we move beyond the current list of use cases and the year end issue paper.

 

My two cents. I truly believe that it is an exciting time and opportunity for electronic government in the US. A time that I believe will allow us to make great strides, create lessons learned, and best practices that the entire egov community can benefit from.

 

Cheers,

Kevin

Robin, thanks for the heads-up.  I got about half-way through converting the
agenda to StratML format and had planned to finish the rest as soon as
possible.  However, the detailed agenda has been taken down, at least
temporarily, and replaced with a short statement at
http://change.gov/agenda/

Some but not all of its substance seems to be available at
http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/ObamaBlueprintForChange.pdf and perhaps all
of it might be at http://www.barackobama.com/issues/

See especially
http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/issues/technology/Fact_Sheet_Innovation_and_T
echnology.pdf

>From my perspective, this is another case study in the need for use of a
standard like StratML, for the purposes outlined at

Hi,

it's a laundry list at this point, but it's still nice to see the 
quick production of a website, and there are items in said laundry 
list that affect eGov:
