Laura, this is not only fascinating, but useful for continued learning as well as potential business case purposes. Thank you.

I am not sure if this fits here but it might be useful for some of you? Here is a study our group The Canadian Association of Police on Social Media released in August 2010. It's a survey of Official & Unofficial Law Enforcement Twitter Accounts in Canada, the United Kingdom, & the United States. Hope it's useful for some of you :)

Great interview from Chris Dorobek with Gov 2.0 Summit co-chair Dick O'Neill - a preview of what's in store for attendees with the Gov 2.0 Summit program this year!

Gov 2.0 Week in Review
On open data, open government, open cities, open source and more.
by Alex Howard | @digiphile | Originally posted on O'Reilly Radar, August 6, 2010

Last week, I watched Tim O'Reilly talk about Gov 2.0 and Code for America with Shira Lazar on CBS News. Their interview focused upon how Gov 2.0 uses the technology and innovation of Web 2.0 to address the needs of government. As Lazar put it, the future of government is in your hands.

The call to civic action that is implicit in that vision for Gov 2.0 may resonate withGeneration Y in unprecedented ways. New Research on millennials by the Center for American Progress (CAP) and the "the generation gap in government" suggests a a majority of millennials "would be more likely to support political candidates who embrace improving government performance, effectiveness, and efficiency." The poll from CAP suggested, in a larger sense, that Americans want better government, not smaller government.

Opening the doors of government to innovation
by Tim O'Reilly | @timoreilly | Originally posted on O'Reilly Radar, August 6, 2010

When I organize a conference, I don't just reach out to interesting speakers. I try to find people who can help to tell a story about what's important and where the future is going. We've been posting speakers for the second annual Gov 2.0 Summit in Washington DC Sept 7-8, but I realized that I haven't told the story in one place. I thought I'd try to do that here.

First off, our goal at the Gov 2.0 Summit is to bring together innovators from government and the private sector to highlight technology and ideas that can be applied to the nation’s great challenges. In areas as diverse as education, health care, energy, jobs, and financial reform, there are unique opportunities to rethink how government agencies perform their mission and serve citizens. Social media, cloud computing, web, and mobile technologies -- all provide unique new capabilities that government agencies are beginning to harness to achieve demonstrably better results at lower cost.

Our focus this year is on opening the doors to innovation - learning about the latest technology and its application, and breaking down the barriers to its adoption.
