Thanks for the Delicious info Kathryn. I've added the HHS Center for New Media to my network. I love Delicious, although it took me awhile to really start using it all the time. I get some of the best referrals to informative articles and interesting websites through my network. If anyone would like to add me my account is

The HHS Center for New Media is using Delicious social bookmarking, This means that you can
1. stay up to date with the latest articles on New Media that we find around the web and believe are relevant to applying new media in HHS. You can subscribe by RSS or daily email digest.
2. Submit and share articles you think your colleagues should read. To submit a site to the hhsCNM bookmarks, you must include for:hhscnm as one of the tags. This will notify the account admin that there is a new bookmark to be added.

Popular topics include: Twitter, Facebook, Monitoring, Metrics, Mobile, and others.

I am looking for smarter ways to network, interact and just plain be a part of the HHS "ecosystem" - specifically NIH/FDA. I am always hesitant to engage in a traditional Email campaign - as I think a lot of them (constant contact, etc) are good but end up being deleted. Any thoughts from you marketing/messaging/brand awareness specialists?

Wash Post article about a single VA staffer's successes in starting up agency's social media presence.

Today's Wash Post - red tape now less likely to entable departments'blogs, tweets and wikis
