  1. 1. Good Evening. I’m from the Government and I’m here to help you. Think: Transparency
  2. 2. The Nugget: Why you came to this Where 2.0 Conference, but don’t know it quite yet. <ul><li>∑ i ?! ( fips * ) = </li></ul>i = ?! (foia) TILL THE COWS COME HOME * - INSERT YOUR FAVORITE GOVT. ENTITY HERE. Still thinking about TRANSPARENCY? Good, I knew you were.
  3. 3. What is the Mission of Government ? <ul><li>Maintenance of Authority . “… Many of the actions of politicians and civil servants can be explained by the need to maintain and enhance their power.” </li></ul><ul><li>Administration. “…Governments supervise the resolution of conflicting interests, the workings of the political process, the enforcement of laws and rights, and the monitoring of national income and international trade; they regulate economic and social relationships among individuals and private organizations; and they carry out enterprises such as production of military goods, provision of postal services, and ownership of power utilities and public works.” </li></ul>Have a laugh at the horror of things to come.

  5. 5. But what is it really ? (handy unfiltered version) 1) Primary Objective - Protect /Justify Budget. We’re all in this together
  6. 6. 2) Continually increase size and sphere of influence. 3) Actively maintain ambiguity of mission (see above). But what is it really ? (handy unfiltered version) Suspicion breeds confidence
  7. 7. Does transparency fit in with this model or definition ? 1) Primary Objective - Protect /Justify Budget. Analyzes, Questions, Challenges Budget
  8. 8. 2) Continually increase size and sphere of influence. Does transparency fit in with this model or definition ? (cont.) Challenges Size and Scope
  9. 9. 3) Actively maintain ambiguity of mission (see above). Does transparency fit in with this model or definition ? (cont.) Seeks to clarify mission
  10. 10. Does transparency fit in with this model or definition ? <ul><li>Government </li></ul><ul><li>Transparency </li></ul>ELVIS Anti-ELVIS: Michael J. Fox Sexy, powerful, ubiquitous, timeless, unchallenged, uninterested in stem-cell research Dorky, weakling, tedious, fades quickly from popular consciousness, keen on stem-cell research

  15. 15. Transparency: A 2-edged blade? 2 organizations that provide objective analysis of both sides of transparency and ways to work around them (e.g. best practices)
  16. 16. <ul><li>Governments Ignore Best Practices as a Rule </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>When it’s good, it can be very good. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Transparency: Some make it cut on both sides… Didn’t someone ask, “How can we monetize this conference ?” Remember the Nugget
  19. 19. <ul><li>Instead of playing Farmville </li></ul><ul><li>FOIA till the Cows Come Home with the Bacon </li></ul>We’re all in this together so let’s spread it around a little, huh ?
