Some of you may know that Kate Carruthers and I are compiling a book
on Australia's government 2.0 future.

We're trying to look beyond the spot use of social media or sporadic
release of data under open licenses to consider views of what
government in Australia, democracy in Australia, will look like once
Gov 2.0 is integrated into business as usual - in 5, 10, 20 years

We appreciate how speculative this is. The goal isn't to provide a
definitive view of the future, but to provide suggestions on what may
be, to help public servants, politicians and academics consider where
we might be going and what steps we may wish - or not wish - to shape
the future with thought and strategy.

We are interested in contributions and ideas from all of you, via the
site (link below), via this forum or directly. They don't have to be
grand scale big picture views - you can focus on one specific aspect
or function, one level of government, or one segment of the community.

What do you think Australia's government 2.0 future will look like?
