I’ve been noticing the great conversations people are having here about how to use IT in their agencies, and I added some thoughts of my own here, at FedBlog. An excerpt appears below, and I’m only sorry I wrote it before Marcus Peacock wrote his great posts on blogging as a place to solicit comments for rulemaking.
I want to take this opportunity to ask all of you who write here to consider sending me things you write for inclusion in FedBlog. I’m always curious as to what you have to say, and to share innovative ideas with our readers. My email address is [email protected]
How IT Can Work For You
By Alyssa Rosenberg | Thursday, January 15, 2009 | 02:47 PM
In conversations I’ve had with feds recently, I’ve noticed a theme to questions. People are moving beyond the question of simply how certain Web 2.0 technologies work, but how those technologies can best serve individual agencies. I think it’s promising that we’re in a place where people are thinking strategically, which is why I wanted to call attention to two posts at GovLoop (May require registration). In one, a county-level employee is explaining where he is in the process of designing his agency’s new website. In another, the author discusses how social networking can be a tool to reduce budget expenditures.
