Thanks to Amy West’s tweet for the heads-up about this video, “Tech Agenda 2009: Open Government.” John Wonderlich turns a nice phrase (@ 3:10) in response to the question about defining what is open government. John says, “the Federal Depository Library Program is like the internet of the ’40s and ’50s.” Check this one out while nibbling on your cheese (yes that’s for you Rebecca 🙂 ).
This is the second in a series of town halls, “Tech Agenda 2009: Creating New Opportunities for Open & Participatory Government” focused on how technology can help government become more accountable, transparent and participatory. Panelists for Panel II, “Changing Policy to Promote Open Government,” include Chris Barkley, Meredith Fuchs, Karina Newton, and John Wonderlich. The discussion was moderated by Andrew McLaughlin of Google. This event took place on December 12, 2008 at Google’s offices in Washington, D.C.
