GovLoop - Knowledge Network for Government

Greetings GovLoopers!

In light of Nicole Crane's previous blog post, I'm inspired to ask for your help.

Next week, I am delivering a webinar on Web 2.0 and government for the California Certified Public Manager Program. To date, my presentation has included mostly Federal examples. Since the audience will be state and local employees, I'd like to include 2-3 examples for each tool that is directly relevant to them. Over the weekend, I received some great examples from Adriel Hampton, who is located in San Francisco, and quickly generated a couple others. So here's where I stand (which appears to be on one leg!):

Blogs
All I need and more at http://www.municipalist.com

State of California
Mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom
Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State

Twitter
State of Rhode Island
Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State

RSS

Wikis
???

Podcasts
???

Other

We could share ideas here....but we should also incorporate them into Mike Kujawski's wiki to create a central place for examples at all levels of government.

Thank you very much in advance!

The Massachusetts Departmet of Public Health has a blog: http://publichealth.blog.state.ma.us/
We also use Twitter (MassDPH) , (MassinMotion) for our wellness program and our governor also tweets(MassGovernor)

Hope this helps

Andrew, my upcoming GovLoop Project of the Week will focus on local government websites that have Gov20/Web20 enabled. Any resources you could provide would be much appreciated! munigov 20 is a great site. There also is a list of government entities using twitter at:

Here's a UK list of Public sector tweeters and a league table of their various follower numbers I'm sure that won't bring out the spirit of competitiveness....

btw - follow me @ingridk but not the guy who is beating me by 2 followers @carlhaggerty (although he is a very nice guy and knowledgeable)
