The U.S. Congress ought to be taking some clue” -Ellen Miller, Executive Director, The Sunlight Foundation. “..demonstrates the New York State Senateʼs commitment to a transparent and accessible government” - Dave McClure, U.S. GSA Associate Administrator “With this new system, New York State takes a leadership role in accountability and transparency” - Craig Newmark, founder, Craigslist.org & Craigslist Foundation. “[We] applaud the State Senate for its efforts to further open the legislative process,” Barbara Bartoletti, Legislative Director, League of Women Voters.

  48. 48. We.gov = Citizen Bureaucracy? • Today: P2P 311 (e.g.:SeeClickFix), “Apps” Contests using govʼt data • Tomorrow: govʼt as a platform; civil servants as organizers coordinating p2p government services
