Case Study: Reset SF - Crowdsourcing Civic Engagement and Pioneering Government 2.0
Crowdsourced Ideas Make Participating in Government Cool Again

Harnessing the knowledge citizens and government employees share on social media applications in the public sector is a tricky challenge of the Government 2.0 era. Every day, thousands of citizens comment on government Facebook posts and blog entries or reshare information published on Twitter. Rarely has government had the opportunity to harvest innovative ideas and knowledge published through these channels. The main reason many agencies set up an organizational account is still “to be where the people are.” Recently, ‘open innovation’ platforms have started to address this disconnect, providing the public with the capability to interact and brainstorm alongside government officials. Simply put, these platforms make participating in government cool again.

Social media tools — such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook — are great channels to collect and encourage citizens to provide their insights on the issues and plans of government. Unfortunately, today’s standard social networking services do not have the capability to automatically extract and collate new knowledge or ideas from content that citizens are submitting through the existing commenting channels. In some cases, the sheer volume of comments makes proper analysis very difficult. The challenge is to extract new ideas or valuable insights from the influx of comments in a productive and efficient way. Open innovation platforms are designed to fill this gap.

CitySourced: Crowdsource Your Government
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

In the midst of an unstable global economy, governments are striving to accomplish more with fewer resources. Additionally, citizens are looking for governments to embrace the government 2.0 movement, encouraging increased communication, feedback, and transparency of allocated resources. It is a lofty goal, but one that we feel will increase the effectiveness of government while concurrently improving citizens' quality of life.

CitySourced is a real time mobile civic engagement platform; with our free mobile apps, we allow citizens to report non-emergency issues back to City Hall. By identifying these civic issues (public safety, quality of life, environmental issues, etc.) with a smartphone, citizens are able to snap a photo, shoot video or record audio and easily report issues directly to the city's appropriate department. In addition, our mobile reports provide additional data points about the problem, most specifically the GPS location. From these reports, the city can then respond directly to the user to keep citizens informed of all relevant progress.

Extending Open Innovation to Open Government: a Roadmap for New Opportunities in Citizensourcing
Distributed Knowledge, Open Innovation

Terms, such as co-creation, mass customization, interactive value creation, or open innovation  represent the increasing success of new (predominantly Internet-based) practices and give evidence that the general public can constitute a source of enhanced innovation.

In many countries the public sector has been seeking to reform itself, anyway. Do the open innovation methods, broadly understood provide a way? In this post, Dennis Hilgers and Frank Piller look at the wider benefits of an open public service and raise some of the most important issues.
