[To The Wiki >>] Request for Comments December 7-8, 2007—This weekend, 30 open government advocates gathered to develop a set of principles of open government data.
The meeting, held in Sebastopol, California, was designed to develop a more robust understanding of why open government data is essential to democracy. The Internet is the public space of the modern world, and through it governments now have the opportunity to better understand the needs of their citizens and citizens may participate more fully in their government. A timeline of open government data. By Tim Davies on June 9, 2010 I’ve been working on the literature review section of my dissertation write up in the last week or so – and as part of that I started putting together a time-line of events that I thought were important in the development of current open government data initiatives in the UK.

12 Futuristic Forms of Government That Could One Day Rule the World. I like the idea of the "polystate" (which, by the way, is similar to the government of Triton in Samuel Delaney's novel of the same name, where you are ruled by the political party you vote for, and also similar to Shi'a Islam, where you follow the dictates of the ayatollah you choose to follow), but a major sticking point is how to resolve conflicts among neighboring citizens of different polystates.
If I want to buy a house, whose property laws are followed, those of the seller's state or the those of the buyer's state? If my neighbor is playing his music too loud, and I call my cops, does this create an international incident? Who is responsible for building and maintaining infrastructure?

Traditional governance and steering, based on the top-down predict-and-control paradigm, is inert in the face of today's complex and dynamic environments.
Autocratic control based on a single perspective runs the risk of missing other important perspectives and information relevant to decision-making. Democracy is equally inflexible and comes with a higher time-cost -- the majority has control and overshadows oppositional perspectives. Consensus decision-making takes into account all perspectives in an egalitarian manner but is impracticably time- and energy-consuming. A timeline of open government data.

In 2005, it meant geeks embracing a set of principles and practices: using the web as a platform, harnessing collective intelligence, data is the new “Intel inside,” and others. By 2010, many of the dominant companies and services that embody or fuel Web 2.0 have become global brands: Google, Craigslist, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and a host of new mobile communities or platforms. These companies are often defined by what they allow users to do: upload pictures or video, stay connected to friends, track and discover news, save bookmarks, create communities, etc.
For non-geeks, Web 2.0 meant the online world became a place you could publish and participate. It became about everyone with an Internet connection exploring an interactive web. GovFaces.

Peter Suber: From Profit-Maximization and Market-Orientation to Mission-Focused Profit maximizing limits access to knowledge, by limiting it to paying customers. If anyone thinks this is just a side-effect of today's market incentives, then we can put the situation differently: Profit maximizing doesn't always limit access to knowledge, but is always ready to do so if it pays better.
This proposition has a darker corollary: Profit maximizing doesn't always favor untruth, but is always ready to do so if it would pay better. ...
