If this type of collaboration is possible, think what is possible for government online

As reported in Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media, the Youtube Symphony Orchestra recently performed at Carnegie Hall.

Per the post, How Do You Get To Carnegie Hall? Upload Upload Upload, the orchestra included over 90 musicians located in over 30 countries and while auditioned by professional musicians, the final players were selected by crowdsourcing.

If it is possible to bring together a symphony orchestra, and have it play a mash-up symphony online (and then together in Carnegie Hall), think of the music government agencies could make by collaborating online with each other, with other organisations and with the public.
