New Blog on the OGD from AmericaSpeaks and Ascentum

Two NCDD organizational members, AmericaSpeaks and Ascentum, just launched a great new blog called Open Government Directions.

Open Government Directions will be a resource for those who care about the Open Government Directive and creating a more participatory and collaborative government. At this point, as Joe Goldman explains, it includes four kinds of resources:

  1. Several thought pieces that we have written about best practices in open government, as well as links to resources that others have written. Specifically, we have written a few interesting pieces on key questions that agencies should ask before launching an online dialogue as well as recommendations for what agencies should include in their open government web sites. These will be regularly updated and added to
  2. Online dialogues about best practices in online engagement using IdeaScale and Mixed In
  3. A newsfeed with links to new stories and articles about Open Government
  4. And links to specific elements of the Open Government Directive

Be sure to also check out the Open Government Playbook, a wiki-based resource site launched by NCDD member Lucas Cioffi of OnlineTownHalls.com. As knowledge about the OGD is spread out across the Web; the purpose of the Playbook is to serve as a directory to those resources.
