This short talk is about the thread that ties together open source software, web 2.0, and government: the power and importance of shared effort to solve hard problems. It is keyed off of a wonderful quote from the introduction Harlan Ellison wrote to his 1969 collection of short stories, The Beast That Shouted Love at the Heart of the World. In it, Harlan talks about the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio, and ends with a stirring reminder that no one is going to come down off the hill to save us. We need to save ourselves.
