Hi all

The Australian Gov 2.0 Taskforce today released the "/Engage: Getting on 
with Government 2.0/." <http://gov2.net.au/blog/2009/12/07/draftreport/> 
report and has asked for comments. I urge all IG members to read it and 
post your thoughts to the list - I'd like to get a submission from the 
IG together if the chairs/others feel it's a good idea with comments and 
above all, stressing the support of the IG for an 
initiative/recommendation like this. If I'm out of scope with this 
suggestion, let me know.

(Quick point - W3C gets mentioned only twice - once with Accessibility, 
once with the RDF spec. Good chance for Outreach given we haven't really 
had a look in with this one as of yet. I also think there are some 
really good ideas and points that we can use in this document (such as a 
nice definition of open data that is succinct and concise, and a better 
term for LGD - Public Sector Information), if not making it a case 
study. Combined with some other the other things coming out atm such as 
the UK Archive policy, we are getting some great e-gov stuff happening. 
There is a LOT of excitment here in the e-gov/gov20 community with this 
report - if the recommendations were implemented fully, it will change 
the face of the Australian Public Sector for ever.)

Cheers

Chris
