It is tempting to think of the Open Government community as an undifferentiated body. I know I did until I attended a meeting of Open Government advocates, at which O'Reilly Media Washington correspondent Alex Howard turned an analytical eye on us and theorized that we're actually composed of many different pieces that are each integral to open government. His observation was that there are many constituencies within the broader open government community that often are working on very different problems, or sometimes the same problem from different perspectives.
