In this article from Governing.com we get a hint at the next steps for application development and Open Government.
Bryan Sivak - Chief Technology Officer from Greater Portland - kindly points out:
"We don't tend to release a lot of information about how things work internally," he says. "Once we start to do that and start to get some of that information out there, and start to get interest from citizens and developers in how the internal processes of government can be shaped and changed, I think we can actually start to leverage a lot of value."
Of course, how willing are department heads going to be to let us know how things work 'internally' ? Or for that matter - mayors and counselors ?
