by / May 13, 2013

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.

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
