In my previous post, I failed to point at the most important point.
If tories and labour agree on the same issue, and give it priority,
if Obama does the same in the US
this is the beginning of a new VISION of eGov2.0 shaping. Which is after all one of the goals of this blog.
So now my question is: do we see anything like that in non anglosaxon countries? Are politicians talking about transparency and public data in other parts of Europe, for example?
My gut feeling is NO, absolutely NOT. Anglosaxon countries are more web-savy, and have a strong tradition of debate on public data.
And it makes sense. After all, if you don’t have a MySociety in your country, the impact of transparency and public data availability is much smaller.
But I would be so happy to be wrong.
