Sadly, many federal government departments are still under-utilizing the power of the Internet to deliver services and information and consult Canadians. By implementing user-centered design principles for web sites and measuring web content in terms of long term real-world objectives, the power of the web can be harnessed to achieve online and offline Results for Canadians.
This is a non-partisan forum to meet and share ideas about how to use the Web to blur the line between citizens and bureaucrats; many of us, especially in Ottawa, are both. I believe we can improve democracy by engaging citizens online.
What this blog is not
