U.K. Digital Strategy Receives Praise

WSJ - The U.K. government’s digital strategy is “the bible” and other countries should follow its lead, says the man most closely associated with the phrase “government 2.0.”

Tim O’Reilly, speaking at an event hosted at the British Treasury, heaped praise on the government’s commitment to open standards, its embracing of digital and the requirement to put users’ need first.

“This is the new bible for anyone working in open government,” he said. “Everyone around the world should be following this. If we can apply that as our scripture for government best practices at every level around the world we would be doing a fantastic service.”
