Even Government 2.0 is Bigger in Texas !

Dustin Haisler is the assistant City Manager in Manor, Texas. In his article on, he explains how he uses technology to:

  • post information (town website,open data)
  • collaborate (idea suggestion and brainstorming, discussion via social media)
  • collect information from citizens(crime reporting, reporting of needed repairs)
  • improve processes (publishing forms online)
  • improve other areas (project management, operations management, record retention)

    None of these things is revolutionary, but just a matter of someone taking the time to do the little boring things that can add up to big successes.
Let's hope that Manor, Texas succeeds (as I think it will) and becomes a model for other governments to follow.
