Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social networks are a great way to keep in touch with friends, meet new people, discuss common interests and share information. But social networks like these have a lot more potential than just enabling people to share cat videos and brownie recipes...check out this post from Nick Smith, Director of Federal Sales for Pitney Bowes Software as he discusses how government can benefit from social media. Let us know what you think by telling us more about how you use social media...

A new reason for the federal government to “like” Facebook

FREE Web Seminar: Leverage Real-Time Interactive Reports and Dashboards Across Federal Government Agencies. Thur, 7/28 @ 11AM.

Register here:


The recently-passed Government Performance and Results Modernization Act (GPRA) of 2010 calls for a more defined performance framework and requires frequent reporting and reviews to increase the use of performance information in program decision-making. Join us on Thursday, July 28 at 11am PT for a web seminar to understand how BIRT can be leveraged to create real-time interactive reports and dashboards to enable agencies to meet the new federal GPRA reporting requirements. In addition to providing attendees with an overview on BIRT, three federal agencies' usage of BIRT will be showcased.

Attend this web seminar to learn:

- Why BIRT is the premier development environment to present data visualizations in compelling ways via the Web
- Ways to quickly create interactive reports and dashboards that are real-time, easy to build and engage users
- How to deliver dynamic information across agencies and to the public via the web and mobile devices or cloud infrastructure

American Jails magazine (and the American Jails Association website home page, features my new article on using social media as part of an agency's communications and outreach strategy. Shows why and how to educate, share data, and gain public understanding and support, with links to examples of public safety agency sites and voices.

Gov 2.0 Summit

Gov 2.0 Summit is the gathering place for technology innovators, citizens, and government leaders to discuss and debate the next stage of governance: Gov 2.0. From open data to social media, from web services to mobile applications, from crowdsourcing to cloud computing, government is exploring the power of the latest wave of technology to lower the costs of government while increasing its capabilities. Last year’s Gov 2.0 Summit sold out. Submit your request for an invitation today and reserve your seat at the table.

Folks in this group may be interested in leveraging some new Web technology for crowdsourced knowledge in Executable English.

Please Google Executable English to find this. It's live online, and its free.

English text (like this sentence) is normally something for a person to read, but it cannot be used as a program that you can run on a computer.

On the other hand, executable English is something that a person can read, and that you can also run on a computer.

So, imagine government and other web sites being able to answer an open ended collection of English questions, and also explaining the answers in English. Imagine government folks and citizens socially networking, Wikipedia-style, to continually expand the range of questions that can be answered.
