To the Canadian federal “govies” out there that may have missed the memo, a crucial policy instrument called PANDU took effect exactly one year ago (excluding section 6.1.3 , which kicked-in 7 months later).
Last year I created a simple Google Spreadsheet (essentially a wiki list) for Canadian public servants to input their organization’s mobile website and/or app so that others could see who was doing what. I made this spreadsheet public, allowed anyone to edit, and housed it under the “mobilegovernment.ca” URL. Since that time, many government folks have let me know that thanks in part to this resource (and a subsequent presentation I put on SlideShare) , they were able to build a stronger case within their own department to address the rapidly evolving mobile space and content consumption habits of Canadians. I’m glad I could be of assistance.
Back in early 2011, I created a collaborative Google Spreadsheet (available at www.mobilegovernment.ca) to compile a list of Canadian government organizations (federal, provincial , municipal +crown/agency) that have created mobile websites and/or mobile apps. As a supplement to that spreadsheet I also created a visual presentation with screenshots of each entry, which I try to update every 12 months and have embedded below.
