Campaign: New Tools and Technologies

Rewire the US communications system

Use stimulus money to rewire the US for 'the Grid' (the new internet created by CERN) to upgrade our communication and commerce network and, again, create jobs. It is over 10,000 times faster than the web and eliminates many of the limitations of e-commerce today. Low-overhead, grassroots commerce is a bright future for business and consumers.

Create a government-wide culture of transparency, collaboration, and participation

To have any hope of sustaining the changes implemented through this initiative, the culture of the Federal government needs to undergo a transformation.

Use a Whole Systems Approach to Transparency and Open Government

One of the major challenges with large initiatives (such as this Transparency and Open Government initiative) and large organizations/institutions (such as the Federal Government) is the lack of integration, collaboration, and synergy that usually result from trying to design, implement, and manage anything this large and complex.

Encourage, support, and fund interagency initiatives, programs, and projects

The current budgeting and funding of agency programs and projects inhibits and even discourages interagency partnering and collaboration. Let's offer incentives and provide options to make it easier for federal agencies to work collaboratively with one another.

Do this again - but with better communication

Problem: Minimal advance public notice of Open Government Dialogue and the brief period allowed for comments mean that many Americans will be precluded from participating. Proposed solution: To get the full benefit of citizens' experiences, wisdom and ingenuity, Open Government Dialogue should be repeated - next time with plenty of public notice and a generous response time - at least as much as provided under standard ...more »

Campaign: Training and Development

Require Communication Skills Training

Too many people who work for government are not up to the task of interacting with the public. At minimum they need customer service training. At higher levels, they need to be proficient in public debate, public speaking and dealing with the press.
