Democracy 2.0?

Or talk show-as-government?

It remains to be seen if this two-way "Web 2.0"-style communications strategy will translate into improved government and increased value for our tax dollars.  But it is hard to argue that these initial signals indicate a new, innovative approach to government-to-citizen (G2C) marketing. 


What? No RSS feed? Then it's only 1.9, sorry... :-)

I like the policy analysis by word-cloud ;-)

I'm not a big fan of user-generated content due to the high garbage and noise rates from ranting looney-toons. However good stats converted to word clouds do provide an excellent foil against the loudmouths and counterpoint to the excessively linear nature of online 'comment' 'discussions'.
