We as a community have the skills and cleverness to apply computational thinking to the big problem we face today of "doing more with less." How do we get beyond the technology... RSS, RDF, Microformats, iCal, etc., to get other people who do not self-identify as geeks — to actually use authoritative feed syndication to enable Gov 2.0 and the evolution of the institutions we all depend upon.

Data syndication is a fundamental concept and basic skill for all "digital citizens" in order to grow a healthy economy and community. What needs to be taught and what should we expect people to know? Who needs to be taught first? Where is the funding? If you have some ideas, can lend a hand, or influence decision makers, please attend or contribute your thoughts.
