OPEN DATA GOVERNMENT 2.0 – Starfish vs. Spider: Government 2.0 operations in a WikiLeak environment



Starfish vs. Spider: Government 2.0 Operations in A WikiLeak Enviroronment

in Sector: Public (“American Progress Through Technological Innovation”)

An update on his earlier Government 2.0: Five Predictions for 2010-12 for the future of open government, with a sections: When Government 2.0 meets WikiLeaks, The Starfish (WikiLeaks) and the Spider (“Government”) and One More Prediction: Entrepreneurship and Government 2.0. The second section refers to a book, The Starfish and the Spider by Ori Brafman and Rod Beckstrom (the link is the wiki entry for the book).

In the update, Mark refers to an other article he wrote, What Does Government 2.0 Look Like – Mark Drapeau offers a visual breakdown of the Govt 2.0 components ( 24 May, 2010), which does indeed have a set of clear graphics, which can be right-moused into another tab to increase size.

Reference is also made to jay Rosen’s 26 July, 2010 post, The Afghanistan War Logs Released by Wikileaks, the World’s First Stateless News Organization.. An extract from the Rosen is also given:

Appealing to national traditions of fair play in the conduct of news reporting misunderstands what Wikileaks is about: the release of information without regard for national interest. In media history up to now, the press is free to report on what the powerful wish to keep secret because the laws of a given nation protect it. But Wikileaks is able to report on what the powerful wish to keep secret because the logic of the Internet permits it. This is new. Just as the Internet has no terrestrial address or central office, neither does Wikileaks.

I’ve underlined the key point.
