The Guardian reports that British government has issued a report called The Power of Information, which urges the government to engage with grassroots web activism.
A snippet from the article: "Imagine Government 2.0. Wisdom no longer flows from officialdom to the population, but is co-created with citizens. Civil servants contribute openly to Facebook groups on controversies of the day. Government websites have wiki areas where people can exchange tips about filing tax returns or claiming benefits."
