Click bait headline but what they say is real -- when you design an information system you need to make it useful to its users both inside and outside government. Dumping data onto a catalog portal won't cut it and that's what too many did at first but thankfully that is changing. See "7 Predictions for "Open Data" in 2015" http://www.ddmcd.com/2015.html

Amazing amalgamation of thinking here. Really summarizes my disappointment in "social media" and "social networking." My favorite phrase: "... another load of fluffy crap." One word I would like to see retired is "engagement." My current view of what ails us is that we have become too enamored of lightweight and low impact communication processes at the expense of more honest and in-depth communication. It's not just about face to face though I think that's a part of it. My sense is that once we let numbers drive our assessment of "engagement" we're more involved with advertising than communication. But then I'm just an old fogie...

I'm assuming this thread will include all kinds of Apple bashing but I have to report that, despite this challenge, I still prefer the Kindle software on my iPhone over my Kindle Fire for actual reading. In fact, I had forgotten all about the inability to "buy" from the Kindle iOS app since I buy so much stuff through my iOS Amazon app as it is. See "A Progress Report on Reading Electronic Books, Especially Kindle" for more.

Make sense. A lot of people will jump through hoops , though, explaining how this "...doesn't make Google more like Apple."

This is one of the reasons why I dislike the emphasis of Linkedin on displaying articles up front by massively-followed "thought leaders." I get enough of them elsewhere!
