    • Good Evening. I’m from the Government and I’m here to help you. Think: Transparency
    • The Nugget: Why you came to this Where 2.0 Conference, but don’t know it quite yet.
      • ∑ i ?! ( fips * ) =
      i = ?! (foia) TILL THE COWS COME HOME * - INSERT YOUR FAVORITE GOVT. ENTITY HERE. Still thinking about TRANSPARENCY? Good, I knew you were.
    • What is the Mission of Government ?
      • Maintenance of Authority . “… Many of the actions of politicians and civil servants can be explained by the need to maintain and enhance their power.”
      • Administration. “…Governments supervise the resolution of conflicting interests, the workings of the political process, the enforcement of laws and rights, and the monitoring of national income and international trade; they regulate economic and social relationships among individuals and private organizations; and they carry out enterprises such as production of military goods, provision of postal services, and ownership of power utilities and public works.”
      Have a laugh at the horror of things to come.

    • 2) Continually increase size and sphere of influence. 3) Actively maintain ambiguity of mission (see above). But what is it really ? (handy unfiltered version) Suspicion breeds confidence
    • Does transparency fit in with this model or definition ? 1) Primary Objective - Protect /Justify Budget. Analyzes, Questions, Challenges Budget

    • Transparency: A 2-edged blade? 2 organizations that provide objective analysis of both sides of transparency and ways to work around them (e.g. best practices)
      • Governments Ignore Best Practices as a Rule
      • When it’s good, it can be very good.
    • Transparency: Some make it cut on both sides… Didn’t someone ask, “How can we monetize this conference ?” Remember the Nugget
      • Instead of playing Farmville
      • FOIA till the Cows Come Home with the Bacon
      We’re all in this together so let’s spread it around a little, huh ?
    • A Public Information Request Today is Money in the Bank Tomorrow
