John Redwood

Delib

Bristol based company who specialise in digital government projects. Their blog posts are always from experience and it’s good to see a Ltd. company sharing it’s ideas and thoughts.

An agile government

Things appear too docuemnt heavy in Government. “Make this please, we’ve planned it for months… oh look, it hasn’t worked and it’s delivered over budget.”

More project managers need to be hired who practice Agile methodology. They are adaptable to change in a world where the deliverables should be subject to change from your origninal idea.

Right now, I love everything @GDSteam is pumping out. It works, it handles mistakes, it moves on. There was barely anything in the news about the .gov.uk site swtichover because it was so smoothly done.

Leaving the EU

Bad idea to talk about it too long. Companies won’t have an easy choice building business here if they’re not sure on what grounds they’ll be trading with the rest of the world from.

Being out would be awesome, then we regain a lot of powers in a country that enjoys being independent winners.

Being in is awesome, it makes us more than just us with the world and expands our culture.

 

Olympics value

The Olympics. Costly in money, but the real value was reasling that our nation is bloody awesome. F you annoying whiny people.

If you alwasy focus on money, nothing would happen but hearing your melchoncy mind complain as you watch it drain away.

The Olympics showed us that we’ve got loads to look forward to.

Can someone organise another big one for us all to get behind please.

“You’ve been invited to join a new Party, 79% similar to your views”

Party, a person or people forming one side in an agreement or dispute.

Has this happened to you at the bar, you’ve got chatting to someone randomly and realised you both acctually share quite a lot in common. It’s nice to know other people think the same as you isn’t it. But crumbs, did you know how un random that is… a lot of other people think like you.

Weird that… so what if I stretched it to say, some of those people who think like your, might even be running your country in government. Arghhh what, No! Never, only rich millionare fools are running our country right?

Well yes, they are rich and fools. But stretch your mind again, how cool would it be if people who thought like you were runnning the country, that would make you less mad at the news and more empowered when you knew your views were being constanly represented.

yourDemocracy, a tool which uses new e-technology to find like minded poeple as simply as e-harmony or match.com. Then the real exhiliration starts when you reasile that other people think the same as you and even be willing to stand for your vote.
* Vote for your party
* Shape your country through democracy
* No more voting for parties that aren’t different

How?
* a series of never-ending questions, it groups you with other people and arbitarly puts you in a circle.
* Do what you want with it after that
