Open Government Intiative
The Open Government intiative was launched in 2009 by President Barack Obama. It seeks to make American government more open, accountable, transparent and participatory. This website (maintained by the White House) contains an Open government blog which highlights programmes, press releases and projects from the American government. It includes case studies of the use of web 2.0 technology to encourage citizen involvement in government. There are also discussion forums where they can vote/ discuss new ideas. From
