  • Our region’s President is giving a strong support to the Open Government strategy, and to this project. I want to quote 2 paragraphs from a speech at the beginning of 2010.
  • The new communication guidelines are: Language: clear and simple, conversational. Storytelling: providing context and graphic expressions to the data in order to explain the story. Accountability: You can be sure that the one in charge is answering you. Not just a community manager. Listening is more important than talking. Ubiquity: people are talking everywhere all the time; the place is the world. Face-to-face: the officials show their face, name and contact details. 24/7 availability. Using  mobile devices to respond in minutes, not in days This communication must always be supported by data. Everyone has an opinion, but facts are facts. Nowadays, Government should directly link the headlines and the data sources.
