FYI: Seeing the future of US federal government websites

GovFresh, a US-based civic innovation and technology blog, recently published “9 reasons why Vets.gov is the future of federal government websites”. Big statement, but why? Here's the list of reasons:

  1. Service-focused
  2. Beta
  3. HTTPS
  4. No navigation
  5. Digital Analytics Program
  6. Active feedback
  7. Playbook
  8. Open source
  9. Easter egg.

Intrigued? Have a look at the post by Luke Fretwell about Vets.gov and see if you agree.

    Interesting. But how would we ever convince a business that this is a viable option for a website?

    Trailblazing overseas is one thing, doing it in your own backyard another thing entirely.
