Australia's Gov 2.0 Taskforce report mashup Winner

... is impressive !

Australian Senator Kate Lundy returned from Government 2.0 Expo 2010 and filed this report on her blog. Including this tidbit:

  • LobbyLens was the winner of the Gov 2.0 Taskforce report mashup competition. This comp was held on the ANU campus (which was great, ‘cos Canberra’s my home town and I was able to get along and see how things were shaping up….) It shines a spotlight in lobbying efforts in relation to decisions made by government.

The LobbyLens network graph application is a step forward in Government 2.0 applications in that:

1) It is animated, colourful and fun to use

2) It shows data that empowers people to form opinions on their government, (i.e. by showing connections between business & government) not just to use killer apps that they have provided for you.

Unfortunately, it's a little unweildy but do check it out nonetheless.
