I couldn't agree more. An innovative agenda has to address a fundamental organizational re-design and include "why" and "why" again do we do it this way?

Encouraging fresh, new and fast ideas can inspire us to break away from old patterns and catalyze us into a creative time in our country.

I hope Chris sees that the innovation agenda in government has to go beyond data, transparency and technology. Great tools to develop and use, but don't answer bigger questions and the need for core organizational change, capacity building and effectiveness.

Thanks for writing about this subject.

A really thoughtful and thought-provoking post, Beth. Open Gov means different things to many different constituencies. Speaking from the FOIA community, I probably fall into the "reformer" group, looking for better and more efficient ways to improve transparency and accountability - so I would definitely champion the sharing of the secretary's calendar as one (not the only) way to achieve that. But ultimately, whether innovation/entrepreneurship or transparency/accountability, the goal is good government. Period!

Beth Noveck

Thanks for the comment. Obviously, these two strands are intertwined. Innovation can help traditional FOIA processes work better, too, such as when your Office develops new mechanism for dispute and online dispute resolution to make FOIA work better. In fact, I'm optimistic and excited about what you and the National Archives are doing to change how gov creates records in the first place to decrease the FOIA burden after the fact.

Another great post! Accountable, AND participatory: this should be a mantra. The two are linked, by the way; in order to participate fully I need a sense of direction that can only come from data-based
I agree with all you say, except that I think "Good Government" is a pretty lame tag. It really contains no information for what should be done. But is a really minor detail.

Ann Steward

Beth, a great post that well differentiates the overall goals from the misinterpretations that have arisen. In time we will achieve both innovation and deeper engagement.

I think you are too hard on your old self :-) Open Government is not a bad name, but it is really hard to deliver on. Your post splits it out into two tracks which is fine but then you are rather hard on the reform track and imply that trying to open up government is not really worth doing. But it doesn't really make sense to suggest that the Cabinet Secretary will reach out to the public to collaborate on solutions and then everything that happens with those problems and solutions will remain totally opaque to the public. I have worked in government so I fully appreciate that total transparency would not work, but if we want proper engagement and collaboration, then we are going to have to find new ways of opening things up that work both for the public and for our leaders and decision-makers.

I appreciate this blog post, because it makes a solid argument for referring to the opengov movement as the "opengov innovation movement" or the "open innovation movement in government". This would require much less explanation to friends outside the beltway and would be generally well received.

On the other hand, the phrase "good government" has little potential to receive bipartisan support, making it an unfortunate choice of words. "Open government", "government transparency", and "government accountability" already receive some bipartisan support. Names are important, and the transparency/accountability movement is too important to become political. I humbly suggest that the Administration does not reframe its transparency agenda as a "good government" agenda.

Now I understand what Open Government means. Our country's governance here is so good. I like the way they run the government here.

One major issue about open gov though is that not everyone in America would be able to access it. Although we are becoming "wired" between communities there is still a huge population of America that does not have internet access. In SF there already is a initiative for universal internet access and they started a petition http://www.resetsanfrancisco.org/petition/san-francisco-guarantee-universal-internet-access If we really want open gov that can only be achieved by 100% of the population.

Very careful and inspiring message, Beth. Open Gov. mean different things to different constituencies. Talk to the FOIA Mass, I probably am the group "reformer" are looking for better and more effective ways to improve transparency and accountability - so I would definitely sample the secretary sharing a calendar (not only) way to achieve this goal.

I appreciate this blog, since it is a strong argument to refer to the movement openGov "innovation openGov movement" or "open innovation movement in government." This explanation would require a lot less friends outside the ring road and is generally well received.

On the other hand, the term "good governance" has little potential to receive bipartisan support, making it a poor choice of words. "Open Government", "transparent government" and "responsible government" and to have bipartisan support. Names are important, and the movement of transparency / accountability is too important to become political. I humbly suggest that the administration has to rethink the agenda of transparency and "good governance" agenda.

Your blog contains unique and verity content. You have professional content writer abilities. Designing and posting of this blog is really impressive.

The problem with aligning the White House's goals to a traditional reform agenda is not only having to endure Jon Stewart's scathing yet humorous attacks on any failures to deliver (no government can ever be transparent enough), but that the White House Open Government Initiative that I directed and the Open Government Directive instructing agencies to adopt open government were never exclusively about making transparent information about the workings of government.

Hi Joel, we are actually in the process of qualifying the 5596 for use as an all FC switch. If all goes well we should be supporting this in September. So far the testing has gone well. We already support native FC connections from hosts and storage to the 5596, so the rest of the testing to be done seems fairly low risk to me.

The concept of open Government is not bad but there should be some limitation in it so that everyone can take the benefit out of it.

Well, the comic strip tells what is Open government. It's very ideal not to be defensive about criticism phase, after you prove them wrong you will enjoy the trust phase given by the public.

Great post, Beth. I thought people were supposed to "get" the concept behind calling it OPEN government from the get go. Alas, we are in an era where OPEN could mean just about anything. I'd like for it to mean collaborative, many have mistaken it for transparency which isn't so bad. Only, transparency should be the result of "an innovative strategy for changing how government works. By using network technology to connect the public to government and to one another informed by open data, an open government asks for help with solving problems", right?
