  1. Luke,

    I clicked on your link “Go Neil Postman” (above), and found this text on his wikipedia entry

    “[Postman] claims that the U.S has been inundated with technophiles who do not see the downside of technology. This is dangerous because technophiles want more technology and thus more information.”

    IMHO, the technophiles within the the “open-govt.” community are so focused on “more technology” to get “more information” (actually it’s Data that they want) that they are, for the most part, ignoring the work of the “non-tech” peers in this area.

    It would nice if there was more collaborative overlap between the “techs” and their open-govt. peers, but it is hard when, for example, the biggest word in the word-cloud at the TransparencyCamp West was “Data”.

    For info about people in the Pre-Existing “non-tech” community, see http://www.OpentheGovernment.org and http://www.NCDD.org
