First post

Welcome to my blog. I used to always badger friends and colleagues in the open government movement for what they read ‘what are you reading now? what’s the best article you’ve come across?’ etc. Looking around for what great folks like Rakesh Rajani at Twaweza, Warren Krafchik at IBP, Nathaniel Heller at Global Integrity and others were reading, whether blogs, policy papers, articles, books etc. Twitter solved that problem for me at first – it provided a great way to curate and filter content. I can now follow rakesh, warren and nathaniel and learn first hand, without hassling them, what they are reading. But right now, there’s so much going on in the open government field, 2013 is such an exciting year between the upcoming G8’s focus on transparency, the Open Government Partnership’s landmark year, the High Level Panel’s report on post-2015 that it’s almost too much to follow and keep track. So for what it’s worth, I’m keeping a tab on key blogs, papers, books, I’ve read or intend to read, and similar to my colleague David Sasaki at Omidyar Network, intend to post these in a ‘week in transparency/accountability’ post every Friday. I hope you find it useful!
