This isn’t to say that social media is an inconsequential player in the political landscape. Candidate Barack Obama did more than broadcast press releases in 140 character chunks; he engaged fans, pioneered tools for organizing, and inspired a culture of viral artistry. However, since 2008, the world hasn’t seen much in the way of election innovation. Ultimately, it isn’t who’s listening, but who’s acting.

The Open Government Partnership: The parting of the red tape


"Is it just another global talking-shop—or a fresh approach to shaking out government secrecy?"-The Economist

Excellent article.

"Whether dewy-eyed or hard-edged, examples abound of the benefits of open government—the idea that citizens should be able see what the state is up to. Estonians track which bureaucrats have looked at their file. Indians scrutinise officials’ salaries painted on village walls. Russians help redraft laws. Norwegians examine how much tax the oil industry pays. Many see openness as a cure for corruption and incompetence in public administration. The problem is how to turn the fan base into an effective lobby."
UGANDA is not best known as a testbed for new ideas in governance.

Της Λινας Γιανναρου. «Δεν είναι καλύτερο από το να πήγαινα στο καφενείο;». Η ήπια διατύπωση θα ταίριαζε περισσότερο σε κάποιο ενδιαφέρον χόμπι, σε μια ασχολία που θα έκανε τα απογεύματα μετά τη δουλει...
