    • Open Media Project- For Government

      A year ago, The Open Media Foundation launched an open-source software service to help state and municipal governments offer free, searchable video of their proceedings as a more affordable and accessible alternative to commercial services like Granicus. The State House and Senate switched to this software for the most recent legislative session and more than doubled their traffic compared with any previous year using Granicus. The City of Thornton and the State Supreme Court have recently begun using this service as well, and we'd love to demonstrate the tools so more municipalities were aware of this open-source option.

        • Gamification - How to use get more citizen engagement

          What if we came up with a tool to engage citizen participation in transparency and government? Using something like FourSquare or creating a game like Klout? We could create a program and award participants. This would help in awareness and education

            It makes some sense now to add some more structure around the OpenColorado data catalog - but what and how?

              • Making Procurement Awesome

                Before very recently, RFP-EZ was an oxymoron. And only a few people on this planet claim that they actually love government procurement. Why does every government agency in the world then wield it in such a way as to make staff and vendor alike shudder at the prospect of it? Let's explore a recent Federal pilot and see just exactly what ingredients it takes to make Procurement awesome for any agency.

                    • Create an open data / open gov rating system for all Colorado cities & counties.

                      For example, use a rating system similar to the 5 Star Open Data Scheme from Tim Berners-Lee: http://5stardata.info/
                      First, get a list of all cities and counties.
                      Second, review what they have available online.
                      Third, assign a rating.
                      Fourth, publicize the ratings.
