Thanks for the invitation. I have sent in my submission for presenting a
paper on "How to prevent being scuttled in your Open Government
Initiatives" based on my hands-on experience in implementing a number of
Open Government initiatives made way back in 2004-5 and how they were
scuttled successfully. There was no will power to continue and the secrecy
took the better of transparency. Accountability initiatives failed and Open
Government initiatives had a fall and was limping.

Gopalakrishnan (Kris) Devanathan, an ICT & e-Gov Consultant, an Innovations
Awardee and World Bank Innovations fair invitee would like to present a
practitioner's paper on "How to prevent being scuttled in implementing Open
Government Initiatives".

How we can learn from failed Open Government Initiatives. How not to repeat
the mistakes already done. How to create a new world order - transparency
for accountability.
