The Design State

I’ve start­ed a new project called The Design State. It’s a weblog about gov­ern­ment web design. I decid­ed to start this up after attend­ing An Event Apart. Much like Tremon­ter was start­ed to edu­cate me about the neigh­bor­hood I live in, The Design State is also meant to be auto­di­dac­tic. There is no dearth of infor­ma­tion out there about what gov­ern­ment design needs to be, but it is almost impos­si­ble to find some­one who is pars­ing out exact­ly what all of these pro­grams and stan­dards and bench­marks and goals actu­al­ly mean.

That’s what I’m going to try to do.
