David Eaves on Gov 2.0, Open Government and Open Data in Canada

“If you read only one blog in the Gov 2.0 space, you should read eaves.ca” – Tim O’Reilly.

My interview with David Eaves on open government and open data at today’s Gov 2.0 Summit is a reminder why my publisher would offer that ringing endorsement. We talked about the risks and rewards of open data, the state of Gov 2.0 in Canada and the progress of “We government” up across the border. Eaves also revealed that Canadians love Facebook, though perhaps not as much as hockey.
