Engage: Getting on with Government 2.0: Draft report for comment

Hi Everyone

If you haven't had a chance to comment on the draft report it would be great if you could before the Christmas season hits. Go take a look at what is being posted.

I'm enjoying a spot of leave at the moment and, in between, relaxing am going to so some work on OZloop.

One of the ideas I'm exploring for 2010 is what an internal audit of public sector Agencies to measure Gov 2.0 readiness could look like.

Hope you are all coping well with the countdown to Christmas. Work is always tough at this time of the year.

I agree, I think it is crazy also. My work environment also blocks a huge amount of sites and some for no logical reason what so ever, they just get picked up in their filtering system. I think we are falling behind the rest of the 'western' world in what we provide through online services and consultation.

Now with the threat of a mandatory Internet filter I have to wonder what the thought process is behind this control - oh hang on, maybe I just answered my own question.

Hi All - Please don't think I"m having a vent here. Professionally, I think it's about time the issue Kylie has raised was described in forthright terms.

It's crazy. It does not make sense that as we near 2010 that no thought goes into what sites get blocked, or are given labels that are clearly designed to put public servants off commenting in line. Who makes these decisions? Where is the logic?

How - given the fact that most public sector Agency Agreements state that employees will be consulted over decisions that affect them - is this the sort of out-of-step management behaviour (and that's obviously what it is), that we cant continue to afford?

We get a report that is seen as being well and truly excellent, public servants - like anyone else - are invited to comment and, despite the fact that Gov 2.0 is clearly worked related, people are made to feel they cannot comment in work time. And, more to the point, it is done in a way that makes a lot of people feel intimidated.

Nobody, is suggesting open slather online, but what goes on at the moment is illogical and counter productive. In short, a risk.

What do you think?

Can't access from work: "Political/Activist Groups;Blogs/Personal Pages". Guess I will try and have a look at home ..... The irony is not lost on me.
