I find this stuff so that you don’t have to.

- Minds in the Cloud – Exploring the Present and Future Possibilities of Cloud Computing – Interesting collection of videos.
- The future of government is open – "With open source software, governments developing open information innovations have the freedom to share software code and applications with other like-minded governments and organizations."
