Transcript

  • 1. Crowdsourcing Government? Kublai – A Social Network of Creatives for Regional Development Alberto Cottica Version 1.1 of 20 November 2008 Released under Creative Commons 2.5 attribution noncommercial http://www.progettokublai.net
  • 2. E-government 2.0 ● harvests participation and collective intelligence to design policy ● “transparency is the killer app”
  • 3. Regional development policy issues in Italy ● Adverse selection: well-funded policy measures attract opportunists, who focus on attracting subsidies rather than on local development ● Information asymmetries lead to process managent skills dominating on vision, creativity and achievement ● Lack of trust – getting worse
  • 4. PEOPLE, not capital, are the engine of development! Meet Italy's creatives, see their work, hear their stories at: http://current.com/users/ProgettoKublai/all/0.htm
  • 5. Solution: a social network of creatives for regional development ● No money handouts (scares off greedy types!) but endorsement to approach existing policy measures and investors ● Talk to people from a creative industries background, strongest on core creative competence and vision ● Strong commitment to openness, meritocracy, transparency, peering (hacker ethics!) to foster trust ● Small project - €250K for the first year (all-in) ● => Kublai - a project of the Ministry of Economic Development – Department of Development Policies
  • 6. The community on ning.com ● 360+ registered users from all areas of creativity (since May 2008) ● 46 projects (since July 2008)
  • 7. Keeping in touch ● project fora on the Ning ● a blog ● an island in Second Life for help desks and meetings
  • 8. Creative Development Awards ● the best projects honoured at Kublai Camp – Rome 24th January 2009 ● win Ministry endorsement + € 5000 in high- profile consultancy ● Take part, be there! All ideas welcome.
  • 9. The future (if any) bring the first wave of projects to implementation ● consolidate the community ● more user-generated project coaching ● open up to public and private partners ● ●towards a diverse ecosystem for creativity and innovation, from Vcs to foundations to policy ●all of the above is useless if the community does not continuously reaffirm its belief in its values and the people within it
  • 10. A social network is an act of love
