From: Steven Clift <clift at e-democracy.org>

I am meeting with legislators in Minnesota next week and I'd like to
print a small collection of extremely high level and concise
introductory documents explaining:

1. Open Government
2. Civic Technology
3. Open Data
4. Civic Hackathons

I realize there are many views on scope of "open government" -
http://thegovlab.org/open-government-whats-in-a-name/ but my main
interest are simple documents that explain the public and social
benefits. In short, why should a state government invest in the spread
of these concepts statewide across multiple communities (not just a
state government agencies first perspective) like they would in
"economic development" for example.

Suggestions?
