Many different government entities are actively employing dialogue and if you have not yet heard of the federal Open Government Initiative, which began December 8, 2009 with the release of the President’s “Open Government Directive”, you may want to start watching the process. This directive instructed all federal agencies to draft plans that would lead to the publication of more government data, the improvement of the quality of that data, the creation and institutionalization of a culture of open government, and the creation of a policy framework to encourage open governance. Moderated public blogs were and are being used to generate and evaluate ideas and comments and this ongoing outreach is reflected in several agency plans. To assess a few examples, see the open government plans of The Department of Health and Human Services, The Department of Transportation, and The National Aeronautics and Space Administration on the “Around the Government” page of the White House’s Open Government Initiative website.
