Crowdsourcing Governance We’ve heard today that as individuals we are smarter collaborating together than working alone. That is as true for institutions as it is for individuals. Collaboration makes businesses more successful. Challenges To do so, we have three challenges we must first overcome: 1. 2. 3. Solutions I would argue that collaboration is more important for government than for business in these very tough economic times, because it enables government to deliver better services for less money and more democratically. First, crowdsourcing is a serious solution to serious problems. 1. 2. 3. Second, designed right, these are not experimental projects. Previously, I had some experience creating a platform called Peer to Patent, in which we connected volunteer scientists and technologists to the national patent offices. Closing

Does My Web Site Suck 165 Mortal Sins That Will Send Your Site to Web Design Hell Checklist 1 | Checklist 2 | What do I do now? | The Top 30 Web Design Mistakes Why can't we see that our web pages suck? I've never figured out the answer to this question. The closest I've come is an article "Why can we predict other people's behavior more accurately than our own?" In the world of web design, we can see other people's mistakes, but not our own, because we're too close and too familiar with our own pages. My two web design checklists make web design much simpler. Checklist #1 is so simple that a brain-dead senior-level executive can use it to see if their web site sucks. The answer sheet: If you check the box for any of the questions, your web site sucks. There is one problem, though. The mistakes in Checklist #1 are fatal. First Impression / Big Picture We've designed our site to meet our organization's needs (more sales/contributions) rather than meeting the needs of our visitors. The home page is too long.

How to hide files and folders in Windows XP – The easy way Ok, so here’s a quick little tip for those people who want to hide a particular file or folder on their computers, but don’t feel like spending $40 on a piece of software for that one single purpose! This method of hiding files and folders in Windows XP is quite rudimentary, which means that if someone knows what they are doing with computers, it could be found pretty easily. However, it’s a great way to hide folders from people like your parents or people who only know how to check their email and that’s it! First of all, if you have a folder you want to hide, don’t create the folder in some obvious place such as My Documents, instead put it in a location that someone would typically not look into. For example, create a new folder under C:\Program Files. Creating a folder there doesn’t hurt anything at all and not many people go browsing through their anyway since it’s mostly just system installation files. Click OK to save the changes. And that’s it!
