See Public Strategist’s writeup. Wish I: – could have been there – was good at all that coding and stuff – still qualified as “young” (though I’d settle for “forever young”) Can there ever have been more of a breath of fresh air in government IT? This is verging on Ideal!

[updated] Here’s a socking great Tweet from David Cameron to Imperial College. He lambasts control state Britain, ID cards, ContactPoint, RIPA and the surveillance state. These things are, as we have said many times, far form Ideal. But he goes on speak with some conviction and some detail on a positive agenda of transparency, accountabiliy […]

Ok *deep breath* Forget all the bad stuff. Let’s dispel this weekend’s smeary vibes and engage in some public discourse using only the language of Wibbies: Would It Be Better If… We need help!

The idea of user-driven data (also called buyer-centric commerce, customer managaged relationships, or vendor relationship management – VRM) offers a powerful antidote to the database state. Instead of endless central registers sharing data to form a sort of toxic soup, users (citizens, taxpayers, parents, patients – you and me) would be equipped with a data […]

Let’s admit it – three years into “Transformational Government”, amidst all the data nitwittery, nationalisation, general control phreakery and wars on terror and various forms of self-medication government has some quite exciting things going on thanks to technology.

WRITTEN ON Sunday, October 12th, 2008 BY William Heath AND STORED IN Foundation of Trust, Identity, What do we want?, Wibbipedia/MindtheGap

(from The Observer) Plans to build support for identity cards by introducing them among ‘guinea pig’ groups, such as airport staff and students, are in crisis after 10,000 airline pilots vowed to take legal action to block them and opposition swept through Britain’s universities and councils. In a move that could wreck the government’s strategy […]
