If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’re aware of the Apps for Democracy contest we recently wrapped up for DC.gov that resulted in 47 applications developed, representing $2,000,000+ in value and a 4000% ROI. Since the end of the contest a couple weeks ago we’ve seen a surge of interest (116 blog posts/articles/radio mentions here) around this program and I’d like to share in more detail what is was and how we did it.

The following presentation is the one I’ll be giving at Chesapeake Regional Tech Council’sImpact of Web 2.0 on on Government IT” panel discussion next week. I’ll record the audio and sync it to the presentation later:

Governement 2.0, Open Data, Apps for Democracy

We’re honored to have been featured twice at the City of Toronto’s Web 2.0 Summit (#to20) and we’ve talked to Toronto about how they can achieve in their city what we did in DC.  Mark Surman, the Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation used Apps for Democracy as a case study at #to20 (he talks about it at min. 30 in his presentation here) as did Anthony Williams, author of  the super-awesome-sitting-on-iStrategyLabs-shelf  book “Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything“.

There was also wonderful, and much appreciated coverage by:
