This site was developed to support the Government 2.0 Taskforce, which operated from June to December 2009. The Government responded to the Government 2.0 Taskforce's report on 3 May 2010. As such, comments are now closed but you are encouraged to continue the conversation at


Submission Text:

Please consider the following for use in your Gov 2.0 projects.

There is a site on the Web that works as a kind of Wiki, for collaborative content in open vocabulary, executable English.

As you know, English text (like this sentence) is normally something for a person to read, but it cannot be used as a program that you can run on a computer.

On the other hand, executable English is something that a person can read, and that you can also run on a computer.

Shared use of the system is free.  Just point a browser to .

Since the executable knowledge is in English, Google indexes and retrieves it, acting as a kind of registry.

You can use your browser to write programs in English, run them, and get English explanations of the results.

Applications of the system include: Answering Questions about the US Financial Stimulus Package, Risk Analysis, Reasoning over Taxonomies, Knowledge Based Data Mining, Business Intelligence, and Supply Chain Management. Please see [1-6].

To use the system there is nothing to install.  Simply point your browser to the site below, to run the examples provided, and to write and run your own examples.

As mentioned, shared use of the system is free.

Please be aware that anyone on the web can view, run and change anything that you write into the shared area.  There is also private group use for a nominal fee — please see .

Apologies if you have seen this before, and thanks for your comments,

Adrian Walker, CTO, Reengineering
