Open Links # 1

On Tue, May 11, 2010, in Open Links , Reports , by Ernesto Belisario

Over the last few months I have dealt with a lot of "Open Government", and that is the new model of Directors (strongly backed by President Obama and that is rapidly spreading in many other countries) according to which, according to the definition given by 'friend Gigi Cogo , Entities "must be open and available to facilitate effective action and ensure public control on 'work."

In particular, I tried to deal with the legal issues related to the adoption of the Open model in our country ( here is an interview I published on " via Italian Open Data "and the theme will also speak to FORUMPA the interesting conference " Innovation without permission. Prospects and challenges of government 2.0 "); is not a mystery, in fact, that Italy is one of the few Western nations in which philosophy has not yet made ​​inroads Open and regulatory profiles (copyright, privacy and transparency) are likely to become a serious obstacle to the practical implementation of these new policies.
It is a cultural closure, even before organizational and legislation; It is no coincidence, for example, that the "Open Government" Wikipedia is not translated in Italian and that there is nothing in our national website which we discuss these issues in a systematic manner.

For this reason, I decided to start a new section of this blog called "Open Links", in which to gather and report news, ideas and comments on the subject, so as to contribute to initiate discussion.

1 It seems only right to start with the reporting of government sites that have already taken concrete actions, in a way that everyone can understand that this is not mere theory or unrealizable utopias. Let's start from the examples of the USA ( ), the UK ( ) and New Zealand ( ).

2. The Privacy Imperative of Jeff Jonas , interesting post on the implications on privacy.

3. Case study: how open data saved Canada $ 3.2 billion , an interesting analysis of the Canadian experience which explains why the Open really works.

4. The Three Laws of Open Data , a stimulant article published on the blog of the Australian Government 2.0 Taskforce .

If you have recommendations for future issues of Open Links do not hesitate to inviarmele.
Happy reading and see you soon :)
