Turn over the names of the Republiklan cyberterrorists to the FBI.

On June 1st, 2009 a cadre of the members of the Republiklan party decided that they wanted to obstruct the process of government, so they posted hundreds of "ideas" that more or less questioned the birth certificate and the birth of our President Barack Obama. They also voted down every progressive "idea" on this web site. These user ids and their email addresses should get turned over to the FBI so the government can ...more »

Replace all government agency email systems with gmail or functional equivalent

The amount of money wasted by each and every individual agency running its own email services is outrageous. Most government employees get 50-75MB (yes megabytes) of storage space, compared to the 5-10GB of space the online players give for free. Now this isn't about getting these services for free, but simply letting Google, Microsoft, and who ever else wants to bid on a replacement for ALL government wide email services, ...more »

Have Federal Employees Twitter/Microblog their Work/Results

I think that Federal Employees across the nation should Tweet the project that they are working on, or tasks they are completing. Once a day, twice a week, whatever. We could then create individual networks for specific Agencies, Departments, and Offices, so the American people can track the progress employees are making. The information could then be compiled at the end of the week to give a graphical representation ...more »

Suicide Prevention in All Federal Departments

Department of Defense components have created 'suicide prevention' programs and trained their military and civilian personnel to be alert and responsive to the needs of their organizations and circumstances. The DoD programs lend themselves to being adapted throughout all Federal Departments and Agencies. I suggest a top down directive to all federal departments that will encourage suicide prevention training for federal ...more »

Establish a US Goverment-wide Intranet

Today many US department/agencies (especially US foreign affairs, intelligence and military departments/agencies), and thousands of employees working for these agencies, currently share information and collaborate using a US government-hosted and provided inter-agency intranet known by the name "Intelink-U" (the "U" stands for unclassified, as there is another similar version of USG intranet that handles "classified" ...more »

Embracing Collaboration by Creating Active Bodies and Creating Active Zones

The best way to change the culture of government to embrace collaboration is: Collaborative behavior is not a stand-alone feature in a culture climate. Collaboration is nested with just a few other activities, including energy-awareness, being healthier and fit. The best way to change the culture of government to embrace collaboration is by implementing a multi-faceted wellness and fitness initiative that already has ...more »

Create Institutions to Evaluate Agency Transparency

The president should create a Dissemination/Transparency Working Group made up of new agency Senior Dissemination/Transparency Officers and task it to establish metrics for outcome (not process) to assess agency transparency and use them to regularly evaluate and report on progress. The group would be headed by the Government Transparency Officer. The working group must fully include outside participants. The Dissemination/Transparency ...more »

Government version of an Institutional Repository using Knowledge Management techniques

I have often heard, when someone is referring to the US government, that the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. We are still even now, emerging from the Cold War era thinking that keeping secrets, even amongst those individuals who are thought to be on the same side, is the best way to operate. This type of thinking should no longer be enabled. Our world has grown larger due to the advancements ...more »

Patterned on the CIO Council and the Web Content Managers Council, this new organization would address all aspects of the technology and infrastructure requirements that will be necessary for federal agencies to plan, acquire, develop and implement the platforms and software systems required for the fully articulated Open Government Initiative. Members would be representatives of their agency's CIO/CTO and Web Infrastructure ...more »

Create SourceForge.gov or equivalent

Create a central source code repository for ALL government software development projects to be hosted and collaborated on. Agencies could collaborate on the development of software systems. Developers from outside of the government and contractor circles that simply want to "help their country" could also get in on the action. This could potentially facilitate an "IT-AmeriCorp" of sorts. There are plenty of automated ...more »

Biden Says 'Everyone Guessed Wrong' on Unemployment Numbers

Read the news today, you will find that our government guessed on or gambled on the economic stimulus would help and create more jobs and get our economy working again. Well today the morons confess they are wrong, they guessed. Let me repeat, they guessed. They and I mean President, congress, and all the other morons out there guessed without doing any homework or putting thought into it. They predicted and without really ...more »

Generate Crosscutting Thematic Bitstreams

We're still addressing problems in the 21st Century with bureaucracies designed in the 1930s. But contemporary issues like Transgenerational Poverty, Environmental Energy, Preventive Wellness, and Early Childcare do not fit neatly into the vertical departmental boxes drawn decades ago. The number of interagency task forces and interdepartmental agreements endeavoring to tackle such issues has mushroomed in recent years, ...more »
