  • •My Vizify biography will tell you more about me.
    •I am part of an international project called '42 Voices About Open Government'. The Catalan version was presented at the Mobile World Centre in Barcelona on April 10, 2014, with the participation of the Catalan writer Màrius Serra, who conducted the event. The English and Spanish versions will be coming (before summer). My topic is continuous improvement. Ref: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
    •The Catalan version is available for download. Learn about the making of the project on slideshare.
    •I have been interviewed and referenced by the news media for my OpenGov input and expertise.
    •The 2nd National Action Plan for OpenGov was released in 2013, and includes expert networking in the section on OpenGov to Improve Public Services. In 2011, I was a participant in the White House ExpertNet RFI via wikispaces.
    •My input to the 1st NAP for OpenGov was posted on the White House blog, and focused on open legislation, open innovation and ExpertNet as priorities. I still feel that these are the top priorities for OpenGov, as the US works more like an oligarchy than a democracy today.
    •I was a participant in the first wiki-bill in the US, an effort to reform California's outdated probate laws.
    •The White House is hosting its first Maker Faire this year. In 2011, I organized a booth at the Bay Area Maker Faire for NASA Ames.
    •My blog provides a good overview of the Open Government Partnership. There are 64 participating countries so far, including Tunisia, the first Arab Spring country to qualify and join, and France, one of the top 3 countries to visit my slideshare account, along with the US and India.
