Hackers Facing the Ocean: g0v and East Asian Civic Tech Community

Written by Sam Robbins. Collaboration within Taiwan or transnationally has never been perfect. Like all g0v projects, international exchange is permanently a work in progress, and much more can be achieved by “rough consensus” than by looking for a particular shared interest. The boundaries of this inchoate transnational activist community are still being drawn, and the meaning of collaboration based on cultural and political similarities is still up for debate. For example, the 2020 Meet and Hack made explicit references to the “Milk Tea Alliance” in the posters on display, and I overheard many mentioning the concept.

Interesting discussion on the short term involvement of civic tech people in the government. It is criticized as tours of duty.

@chihao some contexts here: I don't think they accuse “civic tech people.” Sorry for my wording. The tweet, in my interpretation, criticizes that some one year civic tech programs embedded in the government market themselves as effective solutions for government and some participants from tech company feel that they have done their duty in public service, so they move on next year while the actual changes in complicated democracy or bureaucracy are hard to be done in just one year.

Policy Ignites by Canadian public servants. They build the stage for public servants to propose innovative policy concepts. I have been into one and it was very cool like TED talk. There were some senior officers as audience. And this time is online. If you are interested in how they make public servants feel they are super stars with brilliant ideas, you should check it out ( Nov. 4 night Canada time/Nov.5 early morning for Taiwan)


The New Normal - The Never Ending Policy Story

Policy Ignite! is coming to FWD50 2021, looking at the new normal and how policies are going to be shaped to fit it.

Hi, all
I want share an international forum here. OCF is organizing “2021 Open Government International Virtual Forum” on 11/16 & 11/17. In this forum, we invite governmental staff and civil society from all over the world to exchange their experience and insight about open government issues.

Based on these topics, we organized 3 sessions in this forum. To engage various opinions in the forum, we design “Civic Space” time to call for proposals publicly in “public-private collaboration” and “anti-corruption” sessions.

Now we are open for proposals! If you have any ideas, please do submit it to here. It’s a good chance to engage in with open government issues with international partners!

Call for proposals from now on until 10/27.
