I’ll be the ﬁrst to tell you that before you go down the path of building an app, make your websitemobile-friendly.- Media queries to deliver the right type and size of content to the right device.- Utah is building a universal framework that provides automatic mobile and tablet versions, as well asintegrated social plugins like Twitter and Facebook for every site or application.- Not just content, but strategic mobile online service delivery based on what people are actually tryingto access on their phones.Mobile access in some states is growing almost 25% per month.

June Cohen TED MediaThis is June Cohen, the Executive Producer of TED Media. If youve never seen a TED talk, you can probably turn to your left or rightand ask your neighbor for their favorite. A few that come to mind immediately — Bobby McFerrin leading the audience in spontaneoussong, Sir Ken Robinson on the future of education, brain researcher Jill Bolte Taylor studying her own stroke as it happened, or BillGates releasing a swarm of mosquitos into the audience while he talked about the fight against malaria. But I digress...
Back in 2006, after over 20 years as an inordinately expensive, invite-only event, TED began putting talks from their conferencesonline...for free. Ms. Cohen calls it a "strategy of radical openness."Over the last five years, TED has evolved from a 1,000-person conference to something much larger ... TED Talks have been viewedmore than 400 million times worldwide (thats more than twice the number of Americans who voted in the 2008 presidential election).They are available in 80 languages, thanks to all-volunteer army of translators. And over the last two years, more than 1,000independently organized "TEDx" events have been held worldwide, in 100 countries and 50 languages.
TEDx is a local, community-driven conference where anyone can apply to present. Releasing control of theirbrand, their format, and their idea, the now wildly popular TED Talks format has essentially become a platform thatanyone anywhere can replicate.
August 27, 2011 http://www.ted.com/tedx/events/2224FYI - I couldn’t ﬁnd much information just yet, but it appears there is a TEDx coming to OKC.
continuing with the theme of radical openness are TED Conversations (a Quora-like question and answer socialsite) and the TED API (expected later this year). TED Conversations aims to extend the conference experience tothe Web, enabling the sharing and discussion of topics beyond the video comment threads. The open accessprovided by the TED API will enable developers to build tools and applications around any TED and TEDx contentand associated data – topic, location, speaker, tags, etc.
Ideas worth spreading.TEDs tagline, nee their mission, is "Ideas worth spreading." Ms. Cohen emphasizes that their foray onto the Web,then YouTube, TEDx, TED Conversations, and now the TED API is not merely about maximizing the social Webbut simply about finding the best ways to continue spreading ideas.But what does all of this have to do with government?
Be a Platform Radical OpennessIf you havent sensed the theme yet, Ill repeat the mantra that youve likely read any time you google “gov 2.0”:government can be a platform.
"Every time weve allowed people to contribute, people have surprised and humbled and delighted us." — June Cohen, TED MediaIf government agencies choose a path of radical openness, the possibilities are endless. What are platforms builtupon? Data. Content. People. What do governments have access to in abundance? Data. Content.People. Openness equates to access, participation, and as a result, a more connected and collaborative world.
Ideas worth spreading. Government should be transparent, participatory, and collaborative. – Memorandum from President Barack ObamaSo, in conclusion I challenge you to find your tagline, your "Ideas worth spreading." What is the most basic missionof your agency? What is the kernel that drives anything worth getting done? Once you find that, the technologypart is easy.
