Public Sphere 2: Government 2.0
The second Public Sphere topic is on Government 2.0: Policy & Practice. This topic will gather views on how creating an even more participatory form of government in Australia will improve the effectiveness of public administration, enable communities to better help themselves, promote renewed engagement in the democratic process and enhance our capacity to respond to emerging complex social, geopolitical and environmental challenges.
All information, videos and updates are on the Public Sphere – Government 2.0: Policy & Practice blog post, where you can also put your own comments.
The briefing paper was finalised on the 22nd July and is available both on the Wiki (which includes change logging), and in a prettified PDF with photos, graphs and a mind map. All recommendations were put into an endorsement system for quality assurance and potentially prioritisation. Please see the blog post for more information.
You can also check out this contextual and relationship analysis by Palantir with the data generated by this Public Sphere consultation.
The paper was then sent to the Australian Government 2.0 Taskforce.

The bursting of the dot.com bubble saw many a cyber-sceptic adopt [...]
