Provide the tools and knowledge for TEDx communities to promote and implement open government and open data initiatives.
Hi David, "What would it take to identify one village, one small city government to begin an initiative?" Is it possible to identify yourself as the beginning an initiative? Once you have shown to govern yourself with total transparency would not your neighbor see and react from your model becoming more transparent and self governing too? Oversimplifyingly, :-) Peter
