We talked about the "Show Us A Better Way" competition in the UK today
(http://www.showusabetterway.com/)

So, here's a very similar initiative in the US:
http://www.appsfordemocracy.org/ (my thanks to Tom Steinberg for
spotting this). Shows the appetite that there is in government for using
the web for citizen to government interaction, encouraging forms of
co-production for public services.

Of course, on a different scale, Google has made $10m available for
"ideas that change the world" for its  10^100 project. See:
