What is Government 2.0 Camp?
Government 2.0 Camp is the unconference about using social technologies (aka web 2.0/social media tools) to create a more effective, efficient and collaborative U.S. government on all levels (local, state and federal).
Government 2.0 Camp will bring together the leading thinkers from government, academia and industry to share Government 2.0 initiatives that are already in process and collaborate about Government 2.0 ideas that are currently just visions.
There is also a wiki for the event where attendees and other can discuss topics and other themes: http://www.barcamp.org/Government20Camp
Why is London, Ink sponsoring this event?
- I’m very dissatisfied–to the point of taking action–with the lack of efficiency and abundance of waste in government and am a big believer that new Web technologies, Web 2.0 applications and social media/networking applications can help. Trimming the Federal budget by a quarter of one percent over the next five years could pay for a lot of fixes (long-term) to our educational system or seed the nascent but promising field of alternative energy.
- I fully support transparency in government, particularly government spending–it’s our money after all–and again believe that Web 2.0 technologies and social media/networking apps can enable this.
- I believe the Gov 2.0 arena will yield good business opportunities for London, Ink, long-term.
- Sounds like a great event! (I like the participatory BarCamp approach.)
Hope to see you there.London, Ink Sponsoring ‘Government 2.0 Camp’
