The number of recent USA reports on the insecurity of Web 2 technologies, products and systems, including those by the USA's Federal Government itself, is truly amazing and the general concensus is that a base hardening of both client and server systems is a first level requirements before any Government Web 2.0 initiatives get underway. I was trying to find which project group was involved in this. PS: Any contactual obligations in this regard concerning the security and resilience of any Government Web 2 initiatives with a supplier, as alleged, to the Commonwealth and not directly with the Commonwealth would be a totally unacceptable for obvious reasons. I have therefore assumed that NO ICT SUPPLIER to the Commonwealth is involved in this, particularly where matters related to cryptographic sub-systems, authentication schemes, multi-level confidentiality structures and the like to be used by the Commonwealth.

The one thing I really need, and so do so many others who are just technically minded people, is some idea of when we can expect AGOSP to be 'delivered' (I call it a Lifelong Learning account because <em>Open government</em> to you is <em>Open education</em> to me) . I have tried <a href="http://www.finance.gov.au/e-government/service-improvement-and-delivery/agosp.html" rel="nofollow">since it was initiated</a> to get some idea of what was happening, and what was the strategy in mind. So many of the problems in changing the <em>us</em> and <em>them</em> culture is based around this one thing. E.g. If we want to vote on the ideascale, we all want to know that we can only cast a vote once. At the same time many of the functions that you (and Pia) are strapping together by using a US network via a Web interface can be built pretty simply (on, say aarnet) and be used to be inclusive, and keep a record which is necessary for government. If there is anyway you could do an entry which explains where AGOSP is up to I can at least start pointing some of my techie friends at it so we can begin to consider how to bring some <em>distributed conferencing tools</em> to remote Australian tables. That’s great Nic,
