Government 2.0: The Government as a Platform

first_imgTags:#politics#Trends#web josh catone 1 A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… TechPresident points to and interesting article today from the Yale Journal of Law & Technology (draft version of article set to appear in 2008-2009 Fall Issue) that proposes a new form of open government that encourages the closure of government web sites. The idea is that US government web sites are so notoriously bad, they should just be torn down in favor of private sector alternatives. But this is more than just a privatization push, this is about turning the government into a data platform.“Rather than struggling, as it currently does, to design sites that meet each end-user need, it should focus on creating a simple, reliable and publicly accessible infrastructure that “exposes” the underlying data,” says the draft version of the article (emphasis theirs). In other words, the government should become a data platform, exposing their vast amounts of data to the public — i.e., via API — and let the private sector mash it up to make helpful services for people.The authors say that an open government data platform would lead “toward an ecosystem of grassroots, unplanned solutions to online civic needs.” Eventually, the authors think that data mashup tools will become so commonplace and easy to use that people will no longer need third parties help them consume the information they seek. Instead, they’ll be able to tap into the open government data layer and create custom applications with it on their own time. Think: Dapper for government.That’s a compelling vision of the future of open government, and one that makes a lot of sense. The idea is something like CSS — which separates the display code of a web site from the content. A government data platform would separate the content from the task of displaying it, which the commercial and non-profit spaces are likely better suited for than the government itself.Better online access to government data is something that all three candidates still in the US presidential race support, though Barack Obama seems most receptive to a radical idea like this one, saying on his web site that he plans to make “government data available online in universally accessible formats to allow citizens to make use of that data to comment, derive value, and take action in their own communities.”Easy access to the massive amounts of government data would very probably lead to some compelling mashups and consumer services. We recently wrote about a new massive scale data mashup called PolicyMap that could likely benefit from something like this, for example. What do you think? Does a government data platform make sense? Should the government get out of the web site development business?

Speed, Power, and Mobility Make Creating Beautiful Content Easy

first_img“At these remote locations I’ve got to have that extended battery life,” she says. “I’m constantly multitasking, running a bunch of different programs at the same time.” Intel Thunderbolt technology brings speed to large-volume applications, which is essential for demanding image-editing tasks.Dixon also uses an Intel-based All-in-One PC in her home office, utilizing the large display and HD graphics to accurately edit photos and video. Once again, Thunderbolt enables quick image transferring from an external SSD, which means Dixon spends less time waiting and more time delivering award-winning photos.Learn more about the tools Dixon uses here‌, and be sure to read the complete case study. For more small business tips, follow @IntelSmallBiz on Twitter. Professional photography is much more than setting scenes and snapping pictures. It requires state-of-the-art programs to stream, edit, and share large files, often in remote locations with connectivity limits. Fashion and advertising photographer Dixie Dixon knows the challenges of achieving success as a content creator.“Finding a unique vision and edge in this industry really requires that I adopt new technologies very quickly,” she says. “I need speed; I need power; I need mobility. And that’s really why I choose Intel.” Share content immediately: Collaborate with clients and the creative team during a shoot to enable real-time tweaks.Multitask seamlessly: Manipulate large files and utilize multiple programs at once to edit and finalize images.Perform in all environments: Shooting in remote locations requires technology that performs without having to recharge constantly.Dixon travels around the world to shoot photo campaigns for major clients who insist on the highest quality, and they want it delivered fast. Both demands require storage and performance in Dixon’s key technology. On a shoot, Dixon uses notebooks with Intel Core i7 processors to stream images she’s shooting in real time. The hair and makeup team, as well as the client, can view the shots and make quick changes to wardrobe, setting, and more, streamlining the process and reducing post-production time.Shoot locations are often remote (below) and lack infrastructure to keep devices plugged in. Dixon is challenged to get the right shots in a short time period.center_img For Dixon (seen above in her office) and many other professional content creators, the challenge is threefold:last_img read more
