Open Government: Game-changer yet?
July 18, 2012
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Open government. Transparency, participation, collaboration. Sounds good on paper, but is it a true game-changer yet? Our experts say: Dr. Natalie Helbig: “Opening government is a perfect storm, but we don’t know whether it will just be a lot of data or a sustained and meaningful change in the way we govern and are governed." Russ LeFevre: "Technologies exist to enable open government. This ‘genie’ is out of the bottle. What needs to change is policy, culture and the will of government leaders to champion and sustain change.” Jeanne Holm: “With the international ontology for space, we are trying to create the framework by which we can share data about any mission, any project that the governments are interested in having us collaborate on....so the whole world is a global space community.” David Nero: “The City of Boston has made significant investments during the past 5 years to uplift its technology and business solutions portfolio.” Join us for Open Government: Game-changer yet?
