  • Is there anything more boring than raw data? Yes, a blog that spews forth raw data. So I'll keep this short and sweet. When CEOs doubt the importance of technology in the economy, I pull out a home grown aphorism: Technology is changing your customer, and your customer will change your company. In other words, whether you like it or not, demand will ultimately morph supply. And it's the job of the CEO to have a firm grasp of that dynamic.
  • What was White House Director of New Media Macon Phillips doing on a conference stage at 4 PM Eastern today, hours before President Obama's pivotal address to Congress on healthcare reform? It was a good question, lobbed by old media celeb Kojo Nnamdi (at right in photo).

    Kojo was interviewing Macon armchair-style before an audience of 300 or so at the end of Day 1 of the Gov 2.0 Summit. "Well this is the place to be," Macon replied. "The President makes a lot of speeches but there is only one Gov 2.0."

  • The curtain has closed on Apple’s big event. While we’re still recovering from all the big news surrounding Jobs’ return, the new and improved Nanos, the arrival of iPhone OS 3.1, and the fact that iTunes 9 comes with sharing, we’re now able to actually play with our new toys and we’ve discovered something remarkable.

    Amid all the hype around iTunes 9 was one new instrumental feature for iPhone owners — app management. We were thrilled by the possibilities of finally being able to organize and manage our apps via iTunes, and now we’re even more impressed by the reality.

  • Today's Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase, the prelude to this week's more exclusive Gov 2.0 "Summit" in D.C. shows that Microsoft is pouring some real effort into its Open Government efforts, sponsoring the conferences and lining up top Microsoft people to speak about the importance of open, accessible government technology and data.

    That includes this afternoon's panel discussion with Lewis Shepherd of the Microsoft Institute for Advanced Technology in Governments. It's also a "Founding Sponsor" of the event, the most expensive level of sponsorship, and paid for a one-page white paper on Open Government to be distributed to every registrant.
