(Episode 390; 18 minutes 47) I spoke to Nicholas Gruen a month ago about his work chairing the Government 2.0 Taskforce. This week they came up with their recommendations to the government, with a draft report "Getting on with Government 2.0".

I talk to him about the proposals on today's podcast, which include:

  • A declaration of Open Government by the government

  • Appoint an existing agency as lead agency with overall Government 2.0 policy responsibility

  • Make public sector information open, accessible and reusable

  • Address issues of copyright, including use of a Creative Commons standard

  • Encourage info-philanthropy

Be sure to add your comments on the report, on their site and in the Talkback section here.
