No. 1 Thing to Get Right in Transparent Government

Transparency in government is a very hot topic right now. Mark Parker, President of GovGirl sponsor, SansWrite, met up with me in a Google Hangout to tell me about the #1 thing governments simply must get right.

This "smart form" concept replaces paper forms with uber-smart forms that are like fillable forms, but also include interactive elements that help the user comprehend and complete the form. Transparency in government starts with accurate data collection, and smart form technology can help. 

Watch as my office gets a makeover, and Mark does his best not to dance for us! Learn more about Sanswrite at
