Americans are opting in technology and unfortunately, opting out of the day-to-day process of government. But can this very technology reverse the trend? Progressive companies like Lolay, Inc. think so and is working to truly write the code for a new digital future.
Lolay is a company of experienced digital craftsmen that leverages the power of imagination to create apps that bring new opportunities to life. Lolay has been reimaging the art of appmaking since the turn of the century as they have earned a reputation for building precision digital software applications for top global brands.
“No longer can government operate in a vacuum” claims Lolay Founder Bardia Dejban. The open source government movement is finally gaining some traction which is finally beginning to break down the wall between citizens and their government.
For more than a century, government has mostly operated from a narrow hierarchical system where government officials had access to the information its citizens did not. Technology will open the books, predicts Dejban.
Lolay is beginning to engineer apps modeled on the approaches of New York and Chicago. Both have adopted more open models that equate the public value of an open network of residents, officials and their information to the number of connected residents and the information available to them.
“Open data systems not only keeps government accountable, but also creates true democratic collaboration and the co-production of solutions,” he said. Lolay’s extensive experience in the construction of analytical data systems, coupled with their experience with sensory networks and the Internet of Things, will create revolutionary apps for future citizens, he predicts.
The Lolay project, tentatively entitled eCitizen Kane, will offer to governments a variety of mobile app solutions to literally put government back into the hands of its citizens. Budgets, expenditures, highway maintenance, park schedules, you name it, better informed citizens make better communities.
As part of the eCitizen Kane movement, public initiatives can be included and governments, using open sourced code, can easily adapt general apps to their local communities. Countries are much stronger when their citizens actively participate, the Lolay founder said.
Bringing mobile to government has already proven effective. As shown by the work of Open City, a group specializing in civic apps with open data and the app Riverside’s Mobile 311, bridging the gap between citizens and their local governments helps otherwise tedious community issues like potholes and delinquency, get speedily resolved through the touch of a few buttons.
eCitizen Kane is planned to function on a more comprehensive and secure level than the existing open data apps. The app will also serve as a platform for public initiatives. Governments will be able to modify open sourced code and easily adopt general apps to their local communities.
Every day, precision software applications from Lolay connect millions of people at the speed of thought. Learn more about the appmazing world of Lolay here.
