Comment: Executive Summary: Use computers more (Score 1) 126

Great! So it's a big campaign to use the internet and cool tools like mash-ups and blogs and wikis, to, er ... what? He doesn't say.

All the great reformers of history, of whatever color or background, all had a positive view of what the wanted to do. They had specific laws to pass or repeal. Or, whether you agreed with them or not, they wanted to shrink government, or use government to defined outcomes... Fine. There was a vision there.

This sure looks and smells like a "campaign" - a great big crusade - but the only vision he has is more people using technical processes. The only faith he has, is more people using the internets must be good. So it's a SIM game of politics, with all the (real) politics taken out.

I guess the hyper-real is now realer than the real. Cool. Sign me to er, something. Or whatever! It's got to be good. Right? When can I start pushing buttons on my computer?

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.

Working...
