It seems like every week I am reading another blogpost bemoaning the changing face of the internet & web. It feels like there is something building but towards what I am not sure. Here Sue Gardner from the Wikimedia Foundation talks about being ‘in the trenches’ in the fight to keep the web open.
This all seems a bit familiar. It seems the new website for ObamaCare has taken a leaf out of the GDS book and built a website in the open on Github, using a mix of in-house and SME skills and putting the user first. Hopefully this approach will continue to build momentum – increasingly it seems like the only sensible approach to building big, scaleable, complex .gov websites – which is on my mind a lot!
[Prose seems interesting as well – its rare to see one of these style sites not relying on Markdown.]
This went straight on the pre-order list from Amazon. A book full of infographics based on comic book ‘data’ – what is not to love 🙂
