I posted this blog posting today on a social networking site that I’m working on with the USPHS Commissioned Corps. I wanted to share it amongst the folks here at Govloop and get feeback from everyone here too. Thanks.
Yesterday my office had our monthly “all hands” meeting. During the meeting the topic of Web 2.0 came up. Apparently the topic of Web 2.0 is starting to come up at senior level meetings in my agency. Naturally, I wanted to add some points to the discussion. I told my director about this great new site that I found called Govloop and how I am trying to push a Gov 2.0 initiative for the US Public Health Corps. I also commented that our office would be a great program to beta test a social networking site for our staff. If successful maybe it could be applied center-wide or agency-wide. Here are examples of my agency, the FDA using Gov 2.0. Consumer Health Information website and the FDA Patient Safety News website.
I’m interested to know if your agency is pusing any new Gov 2.0 initiatives. Does your agency currently have any Gov 2.0 projects already deployed?
