  • Thank you for inviting me. It is a real pleasure to be speaking to you and to be in Madrid, Spain.
  • Simon Rosenberg: � Compared to our 1992 campaign, this is like a multi-national corporation versus a non-profit. �
  • Pictures explained from left to right: Top: 1. Obama Campaign Website 2. Obama on Twitter 3. McCain Campaign Website Bottom: 1. Obama MySpace 2. Obama on YouTube 3. McCain Facebook
  • REDO THIS SLIDE – THE PROJECT NAMES AND MANAGING PARTNERS ARE OUT OF DATE New kind of leadership; funding mechanisms; legislative authority; project management; cultural shift; trust and working relationships What do increasing interdependencies look like on the bureaucratic, administrative side? Note that 3-5 in G2G are about building cyberinfrastructure. In some cases, these are projects that began in 1993, with antecedants that go back even further.
  • Picture one: Obama signing Open Gov. Memorandum on Jan. 21, Picture Two: Snapshot of Open Gov. Initiative website Picture three: top-CTO Aneesh Chopra, bottom: CIO Vivek Kundra
  • Notes: ‘ Quicksilver’ as a code name is no longer used officially. The official names for them are ‘ presidential management initiatives’ Presidential management initiatives – 5 overall, one is E-Government. There are 24/25 E-Government projects, all have a program manager designated from an agency. OMB oversees the projects, and divides them into ‘portfolios’. The G-G ‘portfolio’ includes five projects designated at G-G (others are G-C, G-B), although it is hard to draw fast lines between the projects. Eg other projects not included officially in G-G may require cooperation between government agencies.
