Singapore authorities apply iPhone development model to eGov: 5000 datasets avail. | Content Model for Regional eGovernment | Scoop.it
Singapore authorities are rocking the data!
Speaking at the e-Gov Global Exchange - which brings together senior e-Government policy-makers and practitioners from around the world - Mr Teo, who is also Minister-in-charge of Civil Service: "Today, Apple does not design and build its applications in-house but provides the platform and tools for the highly talented and motivated developer community to create great applications for its customers.

"The Singapore Government is already looking at how we can develop collaborative platforms that foster the creation of new ideas."

To that end, the Government will share useful data through a new data.gov.sg portal - one of two portals it launched yesterday. For a start, more than 5,000 datasets from 50 agencies can be accessed, including for research.

Already, new apps are being developed using government data.

A List Apart: Articles: Content Templates to the Rescue

READ THIS! READ THIS! READ THIS! (sorry, but it's true...if you only read one article on this wall read this one)There is a chain of interpretation and formatting that links the knowledge of Subject Matter Experts to the final web presentation. Some of these links have good models: expository outlines, html templates and Content Type Definitions. There is a pretty big grey area in the transition from Subject Matter Expert's draft prose to the population of a Content Type Definition, however, and that gap is addressed in this article in the form of Content Templates. This isn't an industry standard as yet, but should be. - Jeff

Basics in Internal Organizational Communications

Basics in Internal Organizational Communications | Content Model for Regional eGovernment | Scoop.it
The "new communication landscape" is filled with people who have not equipped themselves with the basics. In addition, the old boundaries between internal and external communications are being shifted and rendered porous --by the social media which allow insiders to turn internal communication into public concerns instantly.

Finally, the model of local governance in a fully connected age is going to pass through a phase during which the region will in effect be treated as a corporation. Obviously this model deserves close scrutiny and criticism, but the truth is that our management tools emerge from corporate settings and ripple out through the public sector with a significant time lag. Politicians and policy makers who understand good internal corporate communications are going to be able to apply these lessons to their "social media" communication strategies. (And impulses...)

So I will be pulling sources like this into the curatorial stream as we move along....
