Problem 3: Citizen Engagement with Policy
We are exiting an administration that classified more information than Nixon. We have an opportunity to expose methods for deeper citizen engagement in government. We should be tackling issues like:
Should the rules for government data disclosure be revised? (FOIA)
Should policy decisions permit citizen comments and edits?
Should government employees work in a single, common technical environment? (.govipedia)
What can this White House do to advance the cause of a more citizen-driven government?
These issues are salient and will scope the future of our government. Not leveraging the opportunities presented by the Government 2.0 BarCamp would be a mistake.
