  3. 3. Government on a learning curve <ul><li>Government face new needs, new challenges, new fields of regulation </li></ul><ul><li>Public services provided by a plurality of actors and providers </li></ul><ul><li>Public data can be re-used to deliver added-value services (e.g. gTransit, </li></ul><ul><li>IT trends: data and services re-usable and available across websites (from portal to web services - Gartner) </li></ul><ul><li>-> move from portal-centred towards a user-centred, open, mashed-up government </li></ul>
  4. 4. Examples of user centred, mashed-up government
  5. 5. Government-generated one-stop-shop
  6. 6. User-generated one stop shop
  7. 7. Intermediary geo-one-stop-shop
  8. 8. Difficult to control <ul><li>Users have the tools and the attitude to act and “go public”. </li></ul><ul><li>Public engagement happen mostly outside government websites. </li></ul><ul><li>If public data are not made available (XML, open API), they can be taken (web scraping) </li></ul><ul><li>-> Reaching out, engaging with web2.0 is not only an opportunity for user-oriented services, but a risk management strategy </li></ul>
  9. 9. Beyond the “cool” effect <ul><li>How many people can use RSS and web services beyond web2.0 early adopters? </li></ul><ul><li>Intermediaries can act as channel for non-web2 adopters but we still miss: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Clear business model; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solid accountability model; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guarantee of universality of service </li></ul></ul><ul><li>E-subsidiarity approach: government provides channel if market/civil society fail </li></ul><ul><li>What is the acceptable mix of channels for: public information, sensitive information, or transactions? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Lessons learnt from eGov 2.0 projects <ul><li>Public data/services available for re-use opens unexpected possibilities </li></ul><ul><li>Public services are provided by a plurality of actors: proprietary platforms are not always necessary and may be damaging; collaboration happens across platform </li></ul><ul><li>Users co-build services around their needs </li></ul><ul><li>Usability is key: short feedback loop, listen to users and react </li></ul><ul><li>No ready recipes: necessary to experiment, learn-by-doing, exchange experience… </li></ul>Source: IPTS report “web2.0 for government: why and how?”
  11. 11. Implications for ePractice
  12. 12. Tag-based knowledge exchange
  13. 13. Lessons for ePractice 2.0 <ul><li>Yet another platform? Hard to compete with high-quality free services (Ning, LinkedIn, Wordpress,…) and existing discussions in the blogosphere </li></ul><ul><li>But with key asset: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>large audience, mostly not web2.0-savvy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>data (is the Intel inside) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Participation is hard to get </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Connect to discussion/collaboration outside ePractice (blog RSS feeds out and in; data portability, micro-formats…) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exploit attention data to enable weak engagement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extreme usability requires fast response, shorter feedback loops > work-intensive </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ePractice can become the bridge for web2.0 non users, but is it feasible and sustainable? </li></ul><ul><li>Openness is useful in all scenarios </li></ul>
  14. 14. Conclusions for eGov and ePractice <ul><li>User, not government, is the centre </li></ul><ul><li>Attention is scarce </li></ul><ul><li>Services and knowledge exchange are not platform-centric </li></ul><ul><li>Difficult competition with commercial free services … standards are high </li></ul><ul><li>Open, reusable data and services are key enablers </li></ul><ul><li>But don’t assume services will be created (subsidiarity) </li></ul><ul><li>Learning-by-doing is necessary </li></ul>
