Fantasy Policy League: How to Connect the Data with the Passion

Posted on September 28, 2010 at 12:30am 9 Comments

It's late Monday evening, so I'm focusing on what many government innovation professionals and millions of Americans alike are sweating over - Fantasy Football statistics and trash talking with colleagues on Twitter.

Tonight Matt Miszewski was the pilgrim who…

McChrystal, Guns and Rock n' Roll: A Cautionary Tale of Off-the-Cuff and On-the-Record

Posted on June 29, 2010 at 3:00pm 12 Comments

When your mission is on the line there is no such thing as "off-the-record," and "deep background" can be nothing more than a description of the harmonies on a Beach Boys album. If you want to play with leaks and don't think you'll get wet, hand in your gold stars and go to plumbing school. Never try to cover something up, because eventually it always gets discovered by someone far more hungry than you are, and then you've lost the trust. And most importantly, remember to… Continue

Twitter, Government, and the Meaningful Use of Social Technology

Posted on June 14, 2010 at 5:00pm 16 Comments

Unless you live beneath a rock in Washington, D.C., though some of you may be reading this from a vault beneath the Pentagon, it will come as no surprise to you that Twitter is making inroads into the District with a new Government Liaison position.

The fact that Twitter needs a government affairs presence with feet on the ground is not debated, as we only need to look to the…

Heralding "Crisis Management 2.0" at CrisisCamp DC May Lead to Actual Crisis

Posted on June 12, 2009 at 2:30am 0 Comments

According to ever accurate Wikipedia, Crisis Management is:

"...the process by which an organization deals with any major unpredictable event that threatens to harm the organization, its stakeholders, or the general public. Three elements are common to most definitions of crisis: (a) a threat to the organization, (b) the element of surprise, and (c) a short decision time."

And if someone, or some people at CrisisCamp DC this weekend made a case for a new form of 'Crisis… Continue

Government 2.0, Social Media and the New Stockholm Syndrome

Posted on June 5, 2009 at 3:19pm 4 Comments

Everything old is new again, and with innovative technological advances granting the public greater access to government, businesses and the community, the rules of traditional social psychology still apply. As users tap into a new era of transparency and direct dialogue, it is important to consider that more access does not always lead to empowerment without an equal advancement in understanding, critical perspective, and most importantly, an upgraded BS meter to know when seats at the table… Continue
