What a year for open government. Lots of data was opened, governments worldwide started to collaborate and become more transparent, platforms were created, partnerships were formed, and Code for America wrapped up a successful year. That's just the tip of iceberg.

I'd like to ask you: What do you think advanced open government the most in 2011?

Was it the formation of the Open Government Partnership, the launch of We The People, an open source IT Dashboard, Open source VistA, the release of Open311 dashboard by Code for America, data.gov being open sourced, or something else?
