Subject: [@OKau] The talk thing from yesterday

Hiya folks,
I gave a talk yesterday at the AWS symposium for public sector, education and non profits.
The deck I used can be found here:http://www.slideshare.net/starlen/the-perfect-storm-service-oriented-government-data-classification-and-aws
With a prettier layout many of the words are dropped but the general points I was trying to make were something like this:
Link does AWS stuff and sells services etc...
Using Drupal, CKAN and AWS together is pretty neat and here are two examples on why that is
Slide 12 and 14 show the general approach used for the data first media platform we build for ACT government and the setup we use for Victorian Government's open data release model (three tiers of CKAN environments).
Data classification... the list on slide 16 shows the questions that need to be marked 'no' to release a dataset publicly on the Data.Vic platform.
After that I looped back to the economic points I would normally start with. So, covering the definition of economic goods, why information goods are MOAR good, going through the principles of open government, making a point about the basic role of Australian Government and finally talking about transaction costs.

I think the transaction costs slide is the most important. When you see that collaboration provides not only a higher quality of innovation but also a lower cost, then you can then move on to suggest that every external contract from the public sector into the private is an example of a 'private-public' partnership.
If we can recognize that then we can start to ask whether the procurement and delivery mechanisms are setup to respect the value derived from the 'collaborative procurement' and 'collaborative management' required in private-public relationships.
I had to do the session in 30 minutes and unfortunately there is no recording. If I get a chance to do it again I'll try to get 45 minutes and publish something people can watch :)
