The Business Transformation Agency (my team) would like an opportunity to speak on the subject of "Implementing Web 2.0 in the U.S. Government." We have been very active in trying to implement Web 2.0 (through MilBook, GovLoop and others), and we have collected a bunch of lessons learned and would like an opportunity to share them at this conference.
