How do we make fundamental changes in the direction of a structure as massive as our ship of state? In this opening keynote, open government pioneer Carl Malamud looks at Government 2.0 and asks how this movement can lead to fundamental changes in the federal bureaucracy, breaking down long-entrenched barriers to innovation to create a government as a platform for all of us. Drawing on lessons learned of civil servants from Ben Franklin to Louis Brandeis, Malamud shows how big changes come from small pieces, when movements coalesce on common visions about the common good, and individuals begin to swim in the currents of their time.
