DEFCON talk explains how to hack the death registry and “kill” your enemies. My takeaway: We’re due for a massive cyber attack. Governments haven’t taken encryption seriously enough. When Estonia first implemented X-Road it also suffered a seriously vulnerability, but learned from it and became more resilient. Governments that reluctantly adopt web-based e-gov services in an ad hoc fashion are climbing the encryption learning curve more slowly.

Government-to-Government Services?

There was an interesting article in the New York Times, “Police Surveillance May Earn Money for City” (

Because it focused on law enforcement, much of the article dealt with privacy and other issues raised by police use of technology.  These issues are indeed challenging, but not that new.

A newer part of the story is that this is a good example of something I’ve been expecting to see for a couple of years: government to government software-as-a-service.   

Here are some relevant excerpts from the story:

The policing system is making New York safer and it will also make money for the city, which is marketing it to other jurisdictions. 

Buyers would pay to access the software (at least several million dollars and more depending on the size of the jurisdiction and whether specifications have to be customized). New York City will receive 30 percent of the gross revenues from the sale of the system and access to any innovations developed for new customers. The revenue will be directed to counterterrorism and crime prevention programs. 

This government-to-government service allows less technologically skilled governments to get sophisticated services they could create for themselves.   It also enables the most technologically advanced governments to spread out their development costs over a larger base and to save some money for their taxpayers.  A win-win as the old expression goes.

Even beyond law enforcement – or maybe I should say, especially outside of law enforcement – the logic of this situation is likely to lead to an expansion of these government-to-government technology services.  More examples in future posts.  Please let me know if you have any examples.

Alec Ross on Twitter and Digital Diplomacy

The BBC’s Lucy Hockings talks to Alec Ross, former Senior Advisor for Innovation at the US Department of State, on the day Twitter celebrates its seventh birthday.

With 200m active users worldwide, an estimated 400m tweets are written each day on the micro-blogging site. Twitter has become the tool of choice not only for Hollywood celebrities but also world leaders and ambassadors.

The phenomenon, that today we call digital diplomacy or ediplomacy, is described in the book “Twitter for diplomats,” a guide for foreign policy practitioners and embassies around the world.

Sondaggio: URP e Comunicazione PA

Chi lavora nella Pubblica Amministrazione nel settore URP e Comunicazione sa che i ruoli dalla legge 150/2000 ad oggi sono cambiati, sono cambiate le responsabilità e le competenze richieste per lavorare nel settore che, più di tutti, ha garantito negli anni la trasparenza della PA.

Per questo sto facendo un sondaggio tra gli operatori della Comunicazione, URP, e reti civiche che possano far comprendere a che punto stiamo. 

E, dunque, dove poter andare.

Per questo chiedo a tutti di poter dare un proprio contributo, con pochi semplici click.

Sarà un piccolo passo per cercare e chiedere nuove competenze e nuovi ruoli dentro la pubblica amministrazione.

Grazie a tutti.
