  • Now, a new flood of government data is being released, and the government is starting to see itself as a platform provider, providing facilities for private sector third parties to build applications. This idea of Government as a Platform is a key focus of my advocacy about Government 2.0.

    There is huge opportunity to apply the lessons of Web 2.0 and apply them to government data. Take health care as an example. How might we improve our healthcare system if Medicare provided a feedback loop about costs and outcomes analogous to the one that Google built for search keyword advertising.

    Anyone building internet data applications would be foolish to underestimate the role that government is going to play in this unfolding story, both as provider and consumer of data web services, and also as regulator in key areas like privacy, access, and interstate commerce.

    2. Closely watch social networks for complaints
    On February 13, director Kevin Smith was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight, essentially for being too fat to fit in his assigned seat. He tweeted the episode that night and the next day, and his ordeal became a talking point across the Internet, but Southwest moved quickly to smooth things over. By the time the story was trending on Google, Southwest had already apologized to Smith via Twitter and posted an apology and explanation of its policy on its own blog.

  • Electronic Records Management Contest. Help Your Peers. Share Your Knowledge. Win $2,000.

    Organizations everywhere need to manage their records (paper or electronic). Records need to be managed for, among other reasons, compliance, e-discovery, and business efficiency. As part of AIIM’s continual efforts to improve the way information and records are managed, we’ve created this contest to help everyone improve their records management programs. Have you developed or used templates, guidelines, and/or checklists to get an Electronic Management Records implementation up and running?

    Do you know what works? If you have an existing template/framework (or an idea for one), enter our contest. We are looking for any templates, guidelines, frameworks, and/or checklists for Electronic Records Management (determining value, project planning/components, user requirements, change management, ROI, project planning, retention planning, etc.). Let's learn from and help each other.

  • Forget Foursquare or Gowalla: Soon every website and service will be able to tell where you are, opening up the floodgates for location-based marketing and blurring the budget lines for advertisers.

    "What used to be called point-of-purchase is now called mobile advertising," said Kip Cassino, VP-research at Borrell Associates. "Mobile can be an extension of a retailer's storefront."

    The potential of knowing when and where a consumer is — within privacy constraints, whenever those get hammered out — means thinking outside the interactive-advertising budget and dipping into other marketing disciplines' coffers.
