Open Government practitioners love to speak of “the citizen”. But who are exactly those people? Too often, we asume that we know who they are and what they want. Engaging with them and exploring what they care about is a time-consuming process, thus we are builders, makers and creators with an insufficient knowledge who we are building and creating for. According to Jamie LaRue, the central irony of open government is that it’s often not open at all.
