Since its first review in the Scout Report almost ten years ago, the Government Innovators Network has grown exponentially, and remains a delightful example of the power of well-organized web portals. Produced by the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, this website is a “marketplace of ideas and examples of government innovation.” From their homepage, visitors can take advantage of this buzzing marketplace by looking over some of their recent news stories, a “What’s New” feature, and their general topic list. Within each topic, visitors will be directed to another list of subtopics, which includes a listing of relevant policy documents, events, and news stories. Finally, visitors can also sign up to receive their newsletter, titled “Innovators Insights” and also view multimedia features on faith-based housing developments and woman leaders in criminal justice.
