You can't over-stress the obvious question: What is this good for? What are you trying to do? Who cares, or how can you make them care? And communication basics are the key to any further success. The web is no longer a technology "problem" whose solution needs to be defined by technologists. In fact, it has always been a communication opportunity. But if you don't know what you want to accomplish, or who you need to communicate with, you better walk back a base or two and start with the basics..

Google's War on Nonsense - New York Times (blog)

Google's War on Nonsense - New York Times (blog) | Content Model for Regional eGovernment | Scoop.it
Content in a machine milieu will be industrialized. The conveyor belt that timed the assembly line also dehumanized the work it made more efficient...but there was a long lag before consumers reacted with a demand for handwork. Or did they? I don't know. I know that reading and writing are not the same in a context of taking constant action, e.g. clicking, navigating, choosing, jumping, purchasing, liking, browsing, flicking. Those are not the terms we use for reading and writing in the conventional, perhaps slightly elitist, sense Heffernan is discussing here.

But if you are interested in issues surrounding the quality of content, you need to read this and think about it. Before you click past it.

Portland launches City Sync to increase government transparency | opensource.com

Portland launches City Sync to increase government transparency | opensource.com | Content Model for Regional eGovernment | Scoop.it
Today in his Open Source Bridge keynote, Mayor Sam Adams of Portland, OR announced Project City Sync, the next step in making local and regional governments more transparent.

Adams called on the attendees to help put coherence to city work, to help link up governments, and to put some framework to those interactions through the new project, which is currently live in beta.

"What we're pursuing in City Sync is how to go from data sets to achieving strategic goals," he said, going on to cite a University of Chicago study that demonstrated that regardless of the turnover of residents in a neighborhood, crime and safety in that neighborhood are directly related to the percentage of neighbors who know each other well. "That is something that through our collective efforts we can begin to facilitate," he said.

The new site follows successful efforts over the last year and a half with CivicApps, which was awarded with the first Freedom Award from the Society of Professional Journalists.
