Robert J. Shiller, a 2013 Nobel laureate in economics.

Economic growth, as we learned long ago from the works of economists like MIT’s Robert M. Solow, is largely driven by learning and innovation, not just saving and the accumulation of capital. Ultimately, economic progress depends on creativity. That is why fear of “secular stagnation” in today’s advanced economies has many wondering how creativity can be spurred.

One prominent argument lately has been that what is needed most is Keynesian economic stimulus – for example, deficit spending. After all, people are most creative when they are active, not when they are unemployed.

If Tim O’Reilly didn’t exist, the technology industry would have to invent him. He knows everybody, can explain anything to anyone, helps us understand where things are headed, and convenes diverse groups of people to think about talk about the big topics.

He does all this while maintaining a sense of enthusiasm that I usually see only among people waiting in line for the next release of Halo. Tim likes technology for its own sake, but he’s more fundamentally enamored of what it can do — how it can open up new territory, improve people’s lives, and address vexing problems. After more than 30 years of running O’Reilly Media he exudes the vibe of “this is so cool” that all of us geeks remember from the first time we sat down in front of a computer (and for whatever it’s worth, I think he’s exactly right; this remains so cool.).

Tim brought a bunch of us together at the Gov 2.0 Summit earlier this week to discuss how the geek toolkit is being used to improve the work of government. A lot of the talks are available online at O’Reilly’s YouTube channel (my talk with Tim is here), and I encourage you to check them out. The best of them, like Carl Malamud’s and Ellen Miller‘s, are inspirational (and yes, that word is terribly overused).

The central impression the Summit left on me was of a dedicated and tenacious group of people waging war on bureaucracy, which Javier Pascual Salcedo defined as “the art of making the possible impossible.” The government doesn’t have a monopoly on bureaucracy, of course, but it does have pretty good market share”. A capitalist theorist would say this is largely because competition culls bureaucracy and other inefficiencies, and governments face few or no competitors for their services.

Der zweite Tag der Konferenz “Effizienter Staat 2010” in Berlin startet mit Jürgen Häfner, Leiter der Zentralstelle für IT-Management, Multimedia, eGovernment und Verwaltungsmodernisierung im Ministerium des Innern und für Sport Rheinland-Pfalz.

Bürgerbeteiligung bei der Kommunal- und Verwaltungsreform in Rheinland-Pfalz

Häfner sprach über die Verwaltungsreform mit Einbindung der BürgerInnen in Rheinland Pfalz.  Gestartet wurde mit 5 Bürgerzukunftskonferenzen. 10.000 Interviews zu je 30 Minuten wurden in Rheinland-Pfalz durchgeführt. Das Ergebnis war, dass BürgerInenn prinizipiell zufrieden sind, es zeichnete sich jedoch der Wunsch nach mehr elektronischen Diensten ab. Bemägelt wurden zuviele zu komplexe Formulare. Gewünscht wurden landesweit einheitliche Formulare.

The European Journal f ePractice published its latest issue with the title “Government 2.0 – Hype, Hope or Reality” yesterday. The Centre for E-Government contributed one article about Open Government.

Government 2.0 – Hype, Hope or Reality?

“In the space of two years, the ‘2.0’ meme has risen from obscurity to mainstream in eGovernment policy, as the comparison between the EU Ministerial Declaration of 2007 and 2009 shows. Yet much of the debate is still on the potential opportunities and risks of Government 2.0, with evangelists emphasising the great benefits of crowdsourcing and of leveraging collective intelligence, and skeptics pointing to the risks of wishful thinking, to the limits of transparency, and to the hype about its impact. The question is then: has government 2.0 so far really provided visible benefits for citizens?” (David Osimo, Preface)


Ganz frisch von Dione Hinchcliff’s ausgezeichnetem Blog.

“That the government is joining the Web 2.0 revolution five years after it began is both welcome and needed…”

Can social tools and community-based approaches truly help our government function better and operate more efficiently? Will open access to government data create important new opportunities for citizens and increase transparency?

These two questions are currently top-of-mind in many public sector policy discussions this year. The questions also herald new forces at work in transforming the government landscape in many countries around the world in 2010, particularly as we’ll see, the United states.

Far from being discussions on the fringe of technology, new open government efforts have begun putting social computing and open data in the very forefront of major government initiatives aimed at improving collaboration and participation.

Am 1. Oktober fand an der Donau-Universität der  Informationsabend zu den E-Government Ausbildungsprogrammen des Zentrums für E-Government statt.

Dr. Arthur Winter  gab in seiner Eröffnungsrede einen Ausblick möglicher Entwicklungen in Richtung E-Government 2.0. Die Kernpunkte sind:

  • Ein elektronischer Zugang zu einer vernetzten Verwaltung
  • Bürger kann sich an die nächste Behörde wenden (einheitlicher Ansprechpartner für den Bürger)
  • Neugestaltung der örtlichen und sachlichen Zuständigkeit

Web 2.0 fordert Neuorientierung

Die durch die fortschreitende Technologisierung und damit einhergehend größeren Einfluss des Bürgers mit den partizipativen Mitteln von Web 2.0 auf die Verwaltung, bringt neue Anforderungen für die Verwaltung von Morgen. Diese neuen Herausforderungen können nur durch eine Umgestaltung und Optimierung von Aufbau- und Ablauforganisation, eine Neugestaltung von Dienstleistungen auf Basis einer serviceorientierten Architektur und unter Einbindung der Stakeholder bewältigt werden.

Im Anschluss daran stellte Dr. Peter Parycek die Ausbildungsprogramme des Zentrums für E-Government vor. Die angesprochenen Stakeholder, BürgerInnen, MitarbeiterInnen aus Verwaltung, Wirtschaft und Gebietskörperschaften, werden mit dem notwendigen Rüstzeug ausgestattet, die Herausforderungen des kommenden Government 2.0 umzusetzen. Dabei ist eine große Interdisziplinarität gefragt, da in E-Government Projekten die Bereiche Recht, Organisation und Technik zu berücksichtigen sind. Ein wesentliches Element für zukünftige erfolgreiche Projekte ist Verständnis zwischen Techniker und Organisationsentwicklungsverantwortlichen herzustellen und eine gemeinsame Sprache zu finden.

“Social collaboration, information sharing, and open data were broad themes extensively explored and certainly championed by many at both events, admittedly myself one of them.

Cautious optimism was apparent in the participants as there seems to be a broadening consensus that there will be striking changes in government over the next few years. […] Self-organizing and self-directed behavior is much more likely in the government of the near-future.”
