Time for an Italian Government Open Standards Survey?

Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, has just thrown a survey to ask to to ask people which standards are most important to them.

If you’re a business or community organisation, helping us choose the right standards will make it easier for you to do business with Government.  It will also help us open up data, better informing your decisions, and hopefully prompting innovation.

We’ve placed free text fields in the survey, so you can tell us what we have missed or which alternative standards you believe may be better.

Apparently the results will be reviewed by the Chief Technology Officers Council and then conclusions will be published on the Cabinet Office website next Autumn.

Couldn’t Italy do the same?
