We’re pleased to offer you some Government Sparkle for your desktop. (Just wait for the laptop stickers!)
This happened at day two of the Seattle Datacamp at the Jigsaw Renaissance hacker space with the sparkle consultation — and the lovely special Cooper Black Italics font – from Amber Case of @caseorganic. But I had been thinking about the need for a Government Sparkleforce since I started with CfA.
Make magazine has the slogan “if you can’t open it, you don’t own it.” I think this extends to software and government as well. If you can’t open it, you certainly can’t add your own touch of sparkle.
So this is basically what I was thinking when I think of a government sparkleforce. We are creating new experiences and opportunities to allow us all open up the democratic process in ways that show that we all have freedom of expression.
