Editor's Notes

  • Bring fellows together with cities
  • Apply the lean development process
  • Steep innovation curve that has changed our lives as social beings and consumers over the last ten yearsNot just more convenient, also more connected and capable of acting as networksBut our experiences as citizens really hasn’t changed or at least citizens of our governmentMany particularly young people think of themselves as citizens of the Internet more than of their own government The gap between this innovation curve in the public sector and the private sector is DANGEROUS…it destroys trust between the people and the institution that is supposed to serve us all
