Lessons from the recent elections

Social media made a huge impact on how campaigning and reaching out to people during the recent elections. Share some of the lessons, what happened, and what could have been better. (Open to anyone interested to facilitate)

 

Engagement

(Discussion)

How has social media added to or subtracted from communication between the government and the public?

Does social media improve communication and understanding between the public and policy makers or does it simply lead to more noise, unrealistic expectations of responsiveness and frustration? Should we expect all government officials to be accessible at the click of a wall posting? Does the lack of formality improve or reduce constructive conversation between government and the public? What would improve the online relationship between the two groups?  Robin Ann Rheaume

How can citizens make a difference?

Share how you, as a citizen or someone from the public sector, has helped make a difference to Singapore, no matter how small it is. And how you went about achieving that.

The game of collaboration: Why Collaboration fail and How gamification can help

Collaboration is the most spoken word in business. The value of doing it seems clear, i.e. if you collaborate, then you will get better results. And the advent of social technology (social media), e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc - seems to suggest that people can successfully collaborate anytime anywhere. Unfortunately, many collaborative efforts turn up to be disasters and frustrate all collaborators. Having fantastic collaborative tools (social technology) at our disposal, doesn't make us better collaborators.

 

In this talk, Roan is going to share with you, why collaboration often fails and how gamification can solve the puzzle of collaboration. 

Roan Yong

Social tools for emergency preparedness

Let's look at some examples where the government and the public used social tools in emergency preparedness and response. Let's also crowd source some ideas on how we can quickly put together such platforms in case of natural disasters and other emergencies. Preetam Rai

Online Activism: Mainstreaming Civil Society

Sustained civil society activism requires creativity, innovation and evolution. This sums up the experiences of Dr. James Gomez who has been involved in initiatives such as The Working Committee (TWC) and is the founding Executive-Director of two political associations the Think Centre (1999) and Singaporeans For Democracy (2010) (SFD). He has also been a front runner of internet activism in Singapore and contested in two general elections in 2006 (Workers’ Party) and in 2011 (Singapore Democratic Party). Dr. Gomez will talk about his latest initiative - The GOMEZ Centre (www.thegomezcentre.com) as well as highlight ideas from his work, civil society and elections. He will share what are the things that inspired him to action in the last 12 years and in doing so he hopes he can inspire others into action!

Are we ready for Society 2.0

Gov 2.0 begins with citizens and society.  The way we engage with each other reflects or impacts how we engage with government.  How do we engage? And how has that changed with social media?  Are we more transparent in our interactions, do we show more trust?  Are we ready for collaboration? Prof. Ashish Lall from NUS - Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy

 

Open Data

(Discussion) 

Is Open Data enough?

data.gov.sg has a whole slew of raw data available for consumption in computer readable formats. But are they enough? What else needs to be done? Do you want information rather than data? Should private data be also made available in a restricted way? Jianggan Li

 

Open Data

(Discussion) 

A Transparent Government – Is that even possible?

What constitutes transparency within the Government? What can and cannot be disclosed? What are some of the reasons for decisions made? How does a government start becoming more transparent? (Open to anyone interested to facilitate)

Wish List for Open Data

Even though the data is available, it is how you use the data and change it into something informative for people to use. What are some of these information you want to see? Shanyang Yin

(Discussion)

How do we cut the red tape?

The common belief is that when as bloggers or researchers, trying to get data from the various ministries can be a stumbling block. How can we better address this?  CANCELLED

Active Citizenry One App at a time

Everyone's going to be engaging in dialogue. Instead of just talking and talking and talking, let's sit down and figure out ONE project we could do and, at a later date, gather developers who want to help build that project, go to Hackerspace one night and actually build something.  Ridzuan Ashim

Pictures of Numbers 

Data visualisation & information graphics are essentially pictures of numbers. But it is my belief that through this translation of data to pictures, it’s possible to reveal patterns that were previously hidden in the details.

 

We’ll come to look at some of the lessons & processes through the lens of projects past: a couple of elections and a public transport network.
