Here are two recent articles that give us an inside look into a pair of government citizen-engagement projects.
- “Fewer online petitions posted to We the People website” by Joseph Marks on Nextgov.com.
- “Most Data.gov apps are built by government, not the public” by Joseph Marks on Nextgov.com.

Another gov 2.0 news item.
Here is an item I saw first on TechPresident’s blog. The Obama Administration has launched We the People, an online petitioning service where you can voice your opinion on policies or issues by creating a petition, garnering support, and sending the president your feedback on ways to improve the service.
This is how it works. The website says:
“Welcome to We the People on WhiteHouse.gov. This tool provides you with a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”
