I follow a number of Gov 2.0 resources and this week, one of them, GovFresh - Open Air Government, named 10 entrepreneurs who are changing the way government works.
The projects/initiatives that are honored are excellent examples of combining needs with the creation and alteration of technology and web-based tools to inform and engage. I hope you'll read through the honorees and maybe mention which ones you'd like to see given a try in Pepper Pike (no, really!).
My only complaint is that there isn't more diversity in the list - one woman, ten men. I am on listservs with literally hundreds of women involved in politics, the media, technology and online innovations. There have got to be a few more worth noting, but then, for any list, there always are more worth noting, aren't there? So, it's a place to start.
