As per the draft paper, government 2.0 is about applying Web 2.0 
technologies and online community approaches for government 

The idea is to make government more open with blogs, wikis and 
instant messaging.

Unfortunately there is little sign of more open government, with the 
Federal Government asking the opposition for $24,000 to decide if 
they can see the original  National Broadband Network proposal: 

Clearly it doesn't cost tend of thousands of dollars to access 
information, even with the most inefficient of information systems 
and this is an attempt to prevent public access to information. 
Perhaps whoever made this decision should be charged with attempting 
to obtain money by deception. ;-)
