I have read the book for the first time today and it defines the blueprint to show governments how technology can be used to create a collaborative effort between citizens and their government. It is fortunate that the City of Raleigh is so progressive and that they have a citizen in you who has a passion for both technology and government. I look forward to our next conversations about governments of the less progressive communities that are not very technology savy. The story did a great job of "covering all the bases" especially involving and motivating the citizens which is the keystone to good government. I am very proud of what you did and are continuing to accomplish! Keep up the good work.
