Federal CIO Vivek Kundra: Five-Point Plan

Vivek Kundra’s  Five-Point Plan on which the administrative agenda will focus on was published in Government Technology:

  1. Open and transparent government.
  2. Lowering the cost of government.
  3. Cyber-security
  4. Participatory democracy
  5. Innovation

I am especially curious how Kundra and his colleague Beth Noveck will accomplish point 4 and what kind of tools they will use to increase participatory democracy.

I visited the Open Government Committee of New York State today and am very impressed with their accomplishments over the last 35 years.
