Here is my updated, posted both here and there.. :-)
Proposal : Open Government Innovation Network
My main response to this idea is to highlight the 'OGIN' I have started
shaping up, the 'Open Government Innovation Network' -
The rationale for this is the same as the Open Government Advisory Team -
Ie. a network of consultants who specialize in the field of Open
Government, providing an advisory service to agencies who want to
implement these practices.
At a high level the main working parts to this would be:
* Bringing together a team who combine expertise in Open Innovation,
Open Source and Open Data. Be able to advise Governments on the
complete spectrum of what Open Government represents.
* Build a catalogue of FOSS models that encode all of these practices
into repeatable solutions (this site itself is the perfect example).
I have started the ball rolling of building the first regional campaign :
