Podcasting - Citizenship in the Mobile Age

A few months ago we discovered that our friends at Outware Mobile had a podcast, and asked if we could run a series of pods on what Citizenship in the Mobile Age actually means.

To make the podcast interesting we decided to interview someone from local, state and federal government. Together with Outware's experience, government representatives and us, we thought we could make something worth listening to.

In the first pod we discussed what is the role of government in creating digital services for the community? How can the community itself bring ideas and specialist expertise to the conversation and co-create value that benefits everyone. And, what does ‘Government as a Platform’ mean?

Panel:

  • Michael Dalic (Consultant, Outware Mobile)
  • Jithma Beneragama (Director – Digital Engagement, Victorian Government)
  • Dan Groch (Board of Advisors and Co-Founder, Code for Australia)
  • Lucia Vuong (Marketing Manager, Outware Mobile)

You can listen to the podcast here, or download OM podcast from wherever you get your podcasts. 

On the second pod we talked about how Government has changed its approach to digital in response to the rise of mobile. What are some of the differences between how people access government services on desktop versus mobile? What are some of the challenges that this has presented and what are some of the opportunities for this space? 

Panel:

  • Lucia Vuong (Marketing Manager, Outware Mobile)
  • Alvaro Maz (Managing Director and Co-Founder, Code for Australia)
  • Tam Shepherd (Chief Digital Officer, Department of Human Services, Commonwealth Government)
  • Jon Cumming (Chief Digital Officer, ACT Government)
