Open government, really?

Since Professor Beth Noveck, whose book Wikigovernment I recently covered,  is now advising the UK government regarding open government I thought it useful to mention her recent report to the Canadian government which a colleague in the CLG kindly sent me (thanks William!).

In the report, Noveck promotes the US version of open government, which the President has more recently slashed the funding for, which, as I cynically said to William, was possibly the reason why she was over here promoting it. However she does offer ten principles for open government in the document, that are based on her experience of working for the White House, and are worth considering.
