Are you starting to see an increase in digitized government documents?
The government already has access to mountains of digital data to utilize, a large amount of information at government agencies remains in the form of paper files. For the Digital Government Strategy and the shift to a more mobile government to truly be successful, the government needs to ensure that these documents, records and files are digitized and stored in a central repository where government employees and citizens can access them via their mobile devices.
How are these initiatives effecting the agency or department where you work?

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...

Webinar Dec 15: Social Media Success for Government. A briefing on the latest trends in government social media usage from the popular 2011 Public Sector Social Media study from Market Connections, Inc. http://www.marketconnectionsinc.com/Upcoming-Events/upcoming-events...
Please consider taking my research survey on public sector website CMS & social media which I am conducting for independent study as part of my MPA culminating experience/thesis research at the University of Memphis.
My research focus is exploring the impact on the public sector from the evolution of Web 2.0 tools. As a greater percentage of the population expects greater transparency online as well as two-way communication from the public sector, expectations for social media integration have increased. The survey is designed to uncover policies and website management tools that help/hinder the ability of public organizations to interact with clients/constituents.
Survey respondents must be over age 18 and directly involved in the management of their government agency’s or organization’s website and/or social media sites. The survey link may also be forwarded to the appropriate person(s) at the organization as needed.
The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete, can be abandoned at any time and will be kept anonymous. Results will be used in my MPA graduate research project, published online and possibly in other forms. The results will be published in Spring 2012 by the Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership.
