Government 2.0 by William D. Eggers

Book Description

A well-written, lively, optimistic book that calls for the transformation of technology in government from "lipstick on a bulldog to total information awareness." This book is proactive in nature (see what these governments are really doing), does not call for a wholesale and costly transformation, and employs a subtle shaming of those governments that have not yet joined the 21st century. William Eggers's argument, conservative in nature, states that the world of politics would quickly and markedly benefit from this digital transformation in terms of a fiscal payoff, but a more profound change would result as governments become more transparent, more democratic, and more efficient.

If We Can Put a Man on the Moon by William D. Eggers If We Can Put a Man on the Moon, Hardback (November 2009)

The American people are frustrated with their government. Yet the US has a proud history of great achievements: victory in World War II, the national highway system, welfare reform, the moon landing. The US need more successes like these to reclaim the government's legacy of competence. This title explains how to do it.

Unlocking the Power of Networks by William D. Eggers Unlocking the Power of Networks, Paperback (January 2009)
