Express Exchange Engage
It is fantastic to see the action plan finally released. See the launch post by Patricia Kelly.
So now it is up to us all of us to keep up the momentum. The new look of the innovation web is great. So jump in and help the APS progress further.
The logical next step is to get…Continue
Nice post on the gamification of innovation
Which begs the question of whether we would we get further (faster) with innovation, Gov 2.0 and reform in the public service if we gamified them?
It would certainly take the games played by committees and behind closed doors out of the closet. Which can only be a good…Continue

Looking at creative commons licensing and public sector innovation much of the emphasis is on the application of those licenses to public sector data released to the community. But what about the application of those licenses to innovation within agencies by public servants?
Most agencies have in place reward and recognition systems to acknowledge public servants. However, why shouldn't public servants who innovate be able to apply creative commons licensing to their work…Continue

In January of this year I posted a discussion paper entitled The public service in a Wikileaks world. Some of the ideas in that paper took me down the path of suggesting that we need a public service renaissance.
Like many others, at the time I was very much of the view that there was much over reaction to the actions of Wikileaks so it is now interesting to read comments…Continue

ContinueGovernment leaders who are reluctant to allow employees access to social media must realize that message control in today's new-media environment is an illusion.
The organization's voice is just one of many consistently touching on subjects of core interest to its identity and activities...it would be a strategic error of the most basic nature to not…

My good colleagues Bec Gallen and Michelle Nutting and I were exploring the following questions a couple of weeks ago:
How could we encourage discussion of the palpable resistance to social media within public service agencies? This discussion came about as, despite the projects going on around the place, the experience for most public servants is quite different.
The next question we explored is how could we make that discussion one step removed. And just as…Continue

How often have you thought that Gov 2.0 means government agencies and individual public servants adopting some new practices and ways of looking at the world? It all looks a bit chicken and egg at times, but given the nature of social media technologies the individual has a greater capacity to generate change than in the past. Almost paradoxically this because people can group together to express and exchange ideas and move them into the public sphere.

Fantastic of AGIMO to create a Gov 2.0 Register.
I've been having a look at the data collected and it looks somewhat like this:
91 Twitter accounts
362 RSS accounts
A fair bit of activity. However, the first thought that ran through my mind was what does this activity look like? So here is some imagery in…
Simple question. Is the public service keeping up with this? In what ways does your agency need to change to do so?

On 22 My 2011 I put up a post on Ozloop entitled Freedom of professional expression - Freedom of association.
There is a lot of serendipity about at the moment. The UNESCO report Freedom of connection : Freedom of expression released this month being a case in…Continue

From O'Reilly radar
The president of France hailed the work of Internet innovators as historic, and noted that the level of responsibility that rests with the leaders of today's digital companies as "undoubtedly the highest ever given to individuals who do not work in the public sector or in government."
"The free Internet today marks the difference between a dictatorship and a democracy," said Sarkozy, noting "those who have tried to close…Continue
