    Real,Practical and Insightful.

    Best compilation of ideas and experiences in the areas of transparency and collaboration. Its entirely based on USA but can yield a lots of insight to anyone in the field. Even though it written by many people the level of professionalism and knowledge in each essay is immense. A must read for those interested in technology, governance and transparency.
