Website | @philipashlock

Phil is the Open Government Program Manager at OpenPlans, a non-profit organization that develops technology and media to improve civic services, urban livability, and local democracy. Phil’s specific focus is to facilitate collaboration between cities on the development of open standards and best practices around open government initiatives. Recently Phil has been helping to direct and mediate the development of the Open311 standard so that cities can leverage web enabled 311 services in an open and interoperable way.

Cities currently provide one of the most fertile grounds for implementing Tim O'Reilly's vision of government as a platform. This panel looks at some key developments in cities happening right now, with a focus on the creative tensions between innovation and standards, and how standards can drive innovation. Read more.
