Code of America | Civic Commons - 0 views

  •  
    Civic technology experts have recognized the benefits of sharing technology among governments and institutions. However, instances of successful collaboration and sharing are still few and far between, in part because there is no easy, structured way to share knowledge about this software, let alone the software itself. There is no one place to go to look for civic software that cities need, and no roadmap to share what they have. Enter the Code for America Commons. As infrastructure for the open government movement, the CfA Commons is a community-edited resource to find out what's working, where.

The Center For Reinventing Government - 0 views

  •  
    The Center for Reinventing Government was founded by Paul Wolf an attorney with 17 years of experience working for various government agencies in Buffalo, New York. During his years of government service Paul often questioned why services were delivered in the manner they were. The typical response provided was "that is the way we have always done things". The status quo is not enough for any organization or individual to survive today's fast changing world. Government needs to strive for continuous improvement and reinvent how it makes decisions and provide services.

Report non-emergency issues, receive alerts in your neighborhood - SeeClickFix - 1 views

  •  
    Three basic principles Empowerment. SeeClickFix allows anyone to report and track non-emergency issues anywhere in the world via the internet. This empowers citizens, community groups, media organizations and governments to take care of and improve their neighborhoods. Efficiency. Two heads are better than one and 300 heads are better than two. In computer terminology, distributed sensing is particularly powerful at recognizing patterns, such as those that gradually take shape on a street. Besides, the government can't be in all places at all times. We make it easy and fun for everyone to see, click and fix. Engagement. Citizens who take the time to report even minor issues and see them fixed are likely to get more engaged in their local communities. It's called a self-reinforcing loop. This also makes people happy and everyone benefits from that.

Changing the Budget Rules Could Alter How the Federal Government Lends - Brookings Inst... - 1 views

  •  
    The fundamental question revolves around what interest rate to use to calculate the cost in today's dollars of the government's future receipts. The government makes loans today and receives interest payments and principal repayments over a period of as much as thirty years. The only way to make a fair comparison between different loan programs, or between a grant program and a subsidized loan program, is to calculate the cost in today's dollars.

Bloomberg: How cities can 'Moneyball' government - 0 views

  •  
    My recommendation to Bloomberg and other mayors would be to open the analytics to the public so that everyone has access and can contribute solutions. Perhaps a lesser concern, keeping this type of information private gives incumbents insider information when assessing what issues voters are most concerned about.

The Collaboration Project | An independent community powered by the National Academy of... - 1 views

  •  
    The adoption of collaboration tools is not, at its heart, a technology issue. Technology is readily available and is neither complicated nor expensive. The issue is how government can most effectively put this new technology to work to bring in additional voices and experience to help address key management issues.

Coffee Party | Wake Up and Stand Up - 2 views

  •  
    The Coffee Party is a democracy movement that began on Facebook, powered by volunteers and small donations from every-day Americans; not by oil barons, corporate lobbyists, or partisan think tanks. Thus, we are able to advocate for the interests of the American people without having our objectives, and the notions on which they are based, governed by powerful interests that already have too much influence in Washington.
