Timely information to citizens: Innovations in engaging citizens with service design and delivery Dave Harte Economic Development Manager Digital Birmingham [email_address] http://www.digitalbirmingham.co.uk/blog @daveharte
“ The Open City Plan is a Web2.0 approach to generating collaboration, discussion, creativity, debate, data mashups and open source tools to enable the people of Birmingham to answer one question: "What do I want the city to be like in 25 years?"
“ The problem is, that no matter what the Council do to try to communicate what is happening as part of the [Big City Plan] process, they are limited by their own requirements, party political fighting, out of date communication policies and structures.”
“ Someone working alone, with really cheap tools, has a reasonable hope of carving out enough of the cognitive surplus, enough of the desire to participate, enough of the collective goodwill of the citizens, to create a resource you couldn't have imagined existing even five years ago.”
