The endlessly creative Richard Pietro has put together some Open Gov/Open Data memes. They're pretty funny.
Funny + creative = inspirational. It makes you feel like sharing, maybe even adding your own spin.
Which is why I'm throwing these into the mix, too:
What? It's got a cute puppy in it...
You don't need to pin a cloud - you can join in it!
Government should not be like Mordor.
We don't always open our data... but we should. And make it machine readable.
Or a Peaceable Revolution, if you'd prefer...
It's happening, one way or another, so -
After all, it's Spring.
Will there be some uncomfortable truths revealed? Yeah. Be open, be honest, and invite people to be part of the solution - you'll be surprised how well people respond to actual leadership.
'Cause no one person, Party, ideology or department has all the answers. Create entertaining platforms for people to participate in, they'll bring the options to you.
To paraphrase Jack Sheppard - we are all here and we're going to be here, together, a long, long time. If we can't learn to do the open and collaborative thing, we will keep cycling back to the same problems of economic instability, poverty, bad decisions made with poor data in closed rooms, so on and so forth.
Strong individuals for a strong society.
Open Government supporting a Responsible Society.
