  • Gar, fascinating discussion atm whether Aus can compete on cloud services due to international latency/local laws & I'm stuck USB tethering! #

  • .@trib heh, but Stephen, cynicism should not blind you or lead to pessimism. Everything always w/ critical thinking. Otherwise you miss out. #

  • .@trib hah, @stilgherrian's cynicism sometimes get in the way ;) I'm not breathless, he us making some good points. Certainly some hype too #
  • Vivek in response to ? on what he'd do differently: move faster. He wants more focus on reforming gov hiring to get better ppl #aiiasummit #
  • Vivek: tech isn't a panacea, you still have disconnected ppl, you need to engage w/ *all* the ppl. But don't use that as excuse #aiiasummit #
  • Vivek: there is a shift in power from a few gov officials to the ppl. Which was the point of democracy but now we have the tech. #aiiasummit #
  • .@stilgherrian have you looked at it? I understand being cynical of dashboard hype, but it's a very cool project. #itdashboard #aiiasummit #
  • .@lukehopewell I think he is v interesting. At last nights #gov2au dinner he spoke about shift in society w SOPA as eg of public rebelling #
  • .@FCTweedie totally. Cloud is like outsourcing, similar risk unless carefully considered & strategic control maintained #aiiasummit #
  • Heh RT @stilgherrian: "Darwinian pressures of the consumer web!" DRINK! #AIIASummit #
  • Vivek: innovation in gov requires good policy/procurement & good people. He made the same point at last nights #gov2au event. #aiiasummit #
  • Vivek's shift to "cloud first" strategy was result of frustration with gov use and misuse of tech. #aiiasummit #
  • Vivek: when we identified issue projects we put then on hold & put sector on notice. We cancelled wasteful/failed contracts #aiiasummit #
  • Vivek: talking about IT Dashboard, a very cool initiative & open sourced too :) He challenged the status quo and focused on outcomes #gov2au #
  • Vivek gave kudos to Minister Conroy for his cloud speech & to @katelundy for her work on public participation. Yay :) #gov2au #aiiasummit #
  • At #aiiasummit on #cloud Be interesting to see how balanced it is. I think "cloud" useful if considered carefully http://t.co/f8In3ZMb #
  • Yes. Neither are top clicks from YouTube RT @bernietb: Oi, News Breakfast, Obama tweeting a valentines message to his wife is NOT news. FFS. #
  • Vivek on ? of gov procurement: centralised policies important but whole of gov contracts in consultation w depts. Mandate won't work #gov2au #
  • Vivek: procurement policy that disrupts status quo & enables engagement with innovative players is vital for gov innovation #gov2au #
  • Vivek on ? re gov as tech change agent: gov should demand projects on time, good service. He challenged sector to better serve #gov2au #
  • Currently a debate about whether online if even what citizens want, need. Good comments from the floor & Vivek #gov2au #
  • Gr8 point. At least you're not alone RT @AMCSviatko: @piawaugh But how do you recognise them & utilise them? #frustratedchangeagent #gov2au #
  • Vivek: the danger is to not move, to play safe. It's vital to move and be thoughtful but bold to use the opp. #gov2au #
  • And #gov2au @craigthomler :) RT @USAembassyinOZ: Check out @piawaugh for "tech, #opengov & innovation" with @VivekKundra right now! #
  • Vivek on ? of Digital Divide & representation: NBN major opp, but elsewhere you need to figure out innovative ways to engage ppl #gov2au #
  • Vivek on expectation mgmt: … but ppl do have many useful contributions to make, so you need to facilitate & support that #gov2au #
  • Vivek on ? on expectation mgmt of #gov20 we are in transition period. Ppl don't trust gov or feel they have voice. Need to persist #gov2au #
  • Vivek on my ? on innovation in tech: you need to let go of ppl who don't innovate, hiring practices important to get change agents #gov2au #
  • I'm starting to think I should invite @vivekkundra to contribute to #society5 & the #distributeddemocracy :) #
  • Vivek: #gov20 community, both in gov and in citizenship are driving innovation. Gov investment on NBN very important to innovation #gov2au #
  • Vivek: it is now easier to innovate and compete due to new tech, and those that innovate dominate, as they fill the space. #gov2au #
  • Vivek: European changes 2 gov transparency drove out inappropriate stuff. Basically new shift in power makes transparency inevitable #gov2au #
  • Vivek: Indian gov drove aggressive FOI changes, results of the transformation was short term pushback, longer term transparency #gov2au #
  • Vivek: SOPA a good example of conflict of old and new ideas, old and new models. It made for a public uprising & diff outcome. #gov2au #
  • Vivek: why is gov behind the ball? Basically because gov has traditionally looked to small groups, now gov needs to expand this #gov2au #
  • *Loving* this talk! #gov2au #
  • Vivek: greater shift in power today than ever before due to technology. 5b mobile devices. Everyone can be a sensor & publisher #gov2au #
  • Vivek: #opengov is an epic war between the status quo and progress. Inertia in gov is hard. There's a universal shift in power #gov2au #
  • Going to try live Tweeting @vivekkundra on tech, #opengov & innovation. @craigthomler is also here so follow #gov2au :) #

  • Heh, totally :) RT @aguidodavis: @piawaugh If this is the black wrist cast of yore, further upside: feeling vaguely badass. #
