Bill Roberts on the Web of Data - Public sector open data: big p

While it seems to be going in the right direction and progress has in many respects been remarkably quick (eg this recent announcement on public sector transparency), clearly we still have a lot to learn and many problems to overcome. Chris Taggart and Vicky Sargent’s recentarticle on lessons learned from the Open Election Data project was extremely informative on how far we still have to go.

Why Citizen Participation May Be An Illusion

We use different names for this: government 2.0, open government, e-democracy, e-participation. The basic assumption is that as citizen use technologies like social software to connect with each other and gather around issues and topics they care about, they’ll be able to make their voices heard more clearly and more timely by politicians and government officials. When we look at barriers for this to happen, we usually focus on governments as the culprits. “They don’t get it”, we say, “They are risk-averse”, “They are afraid of innovation”, and so it goes. But are we sure that citizen engagement would really work even if governments “got it” and went to great lengths to embrace social networks?

Pew Research Center's Internet & American Li. The internet gives citizens new paths to government services and information As government agencies at all levels bring their services online, Americans are turning in large numbers to government websites to access information and services.

Pew Research Center's Internet & American Li

Fully 82% of internet users (representing 61% of all American adults) looked for information or completed a transaction on a government website in the twelve months preceding this survey. Some of the specific government website activities in which Americans take part include: Throughout this report, we refer to anyone who did one or more of these activities in the preceding twelve months as an online government user, and most of these online government users exhibit a relatively wide range of behaviors: the typical online government user engaged in four of these activities in the last year.
