"Reconnecting the government to the users of government services." "No longer in the business of mass broadcast of services...government services that if not are personalized then customized"- Mike Bracken

Mike Bracken: in five years, we can expect "government services increasingly bespoked to individualized needs"

"Hearing citizens better...flexible government that can incorporate the use of new tools and the usage of traditional methods so as not to create a greater divide." - Anna Calderon
