I seem to be able to make our own in-house application share data with 3rd party applications developed independently through published APIs and the odd conference call. IT.Gov is bigger, but otherwise, where's the difference?

The Go sign, because, as he says, "everyone should have more than one car anyway, for different kinds of driving." :)
