Hi Mike,

I'm delivering a talk on this subject in Kiev tomorrow. I'm with Lachlan on
this subject but understand why government need 'proof of life' when being
held to ransom over the future of community engagement.

There is no stress giving them such proof but they do need to understand
they are not the seat of power in the negotiation. The demand to open
government is real, reasonable and full disclosure inevitable.

Economics, technology and modern social networks are all putting pressure
on the status quo.

Despite all that, I'm sure there is a mature ODI survey of results. The
link is in my Twitter history some time in the last two weeks... I think...

I'll try and find it while I have free airport wifi ;)

Rock on!
