Kevin: An interesting piece looking at the openness or lack thereof of government. This tends to focus on digital access/digital divide issues. It is worth a read. Digital governance projects must include elements to make sure that this does not simply engage digitally connected citizens. If done correctly, it might even engage people who currently don't have access to digital.

Kevin: An excellent post with some great data and analysis from Alison Gow, Executive Editor, digital, for the Liverpool Echo and Liverpool Daily Post. She takes newspaper to task for claims that 'nobody else scrutinises our public bodies'. She says that the average local newspaper isn't a regular visitor to magistrates courts in the UK. She is working with the Press Association to look at new models of producing local accountability journalism, and she has the numbers to prove it. She also answers the charge from a commenter that newspapers local council and courts coverage is dominated by recycled press releases. Not so. It's great to see this kind of blogging and research going on from within journalism. It's inspired me to do more of it.

Kevin: With the passage of the stimulus bill in the US, the Obama administration has added details to its recovery.gov site. It's a very different way of government to operate. The stimulus bill ran into strong criticism from conservatives online. Follow #tcot on Twitter to see some of the strongly-worded comments. After a lack of transparency with the bank bailout/rescue (depending on one's view of the effort) has been very poor in terms of transparency and accountability. Will this site maintain public support of the effort by being more public, open and accountable? We'll see.

Kevin: Straight shooting from Dan Gillmor who watched and blogged about the housing bubble from one of the centres of the catastrophe, California. He writes: "Our government's current operating principle seems to be bailing out people who were culpable in the financial meltdown. If so, journalists are surely entitled to billions of dollars.
Why? Journalists were grossly deficient when it came to covering the reckless behavior, sleaze and willful ignorance of fundamental economics, much of which was reasonably obvious to anyone who was paying attention, that inflated the housing and credit bubbles of the past decade."
