OpenSF was originally launched by Jay Nath, director of innovation in the City’s Department of Technology, and his team members were the primary contributors. For about a year, I’ve been writing regularly for OpenSF, highlighting social media projects by the City Attorney’s…

Limits of Unconferences for Gov 2.0: What Next?

crossposted from 


Gov 2.0, in my advocacy, is use of emerging technologies to promote a more transparent, efficient and collaborative government.

As a…

Review: Bob Fine's 'The Big Book of Social Media'
