Craig Mundie (Microsoft Corporation), Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media, Inc.)
All good platforms have "killer apps" that drive their adoption, so if government becomes a platform, what is the killer app that will make Gov 2.0 matter to every citizen, not just the technical elite? Is it electronic medical records? Is it broadband for education? Is it the smart grid? What are the policy issues that we'll need to address in order to make this technology reach every American?
1:20pm-1:30pm (10m) General
GeoEnabling Gov 2.0
Jack Dangermond (Esri)
Maps and GIS are changing. They're becoming richer, smarter, and more pervasive. There are new styles, patterns, and techniques. As a result, geographic knowledge will become pervasive in society.
