The rapid growth in the uptake of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, cloud computing, social media, the availability of high-speed broadband, and open government data present huge opportunities in Victoria. The Victorian Government, through its recently released ICT Strategy, is taking advantage of these capabilities for the benefit and use of Victorians. The strategy provides high-level direction on the design and use of information and technology to deliver better government services. It has been developed in response to three drivers: changes in citizen expectations of government services and ICT use; advances in technology; and current gaps in ICT leadership, governance and skills. The strategy was developed in consultation with the Victorian Information and Communications Technology Advisory Committee (VICTAC) which was formed to guide government in its use of ICT.

8 Principles of Open Government Data 8 Principles of Open Government Data [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.

A timeline of open government data 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.

While the first meeting is invitation-only because of space and other logistical constraints, our hope is this meeting leads to a series of open activities in 2008 and beyond. With 3 sponsors, we are able to commit to a follow-on meeting in the spring, location, date, and agenda to be determined after we hear from the attendees at the first meeting. Schedule and Agenda
