@ariherzog: @JustinHerman Perhaps everyone has their own definition of #gov20. I don’t see it as people. I see it as abstract concepts.

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog Either way, healthy critique/support of #Gov20 will continue – hopefully the new ‘experts’ will think harder before they exploit

@JustinHerman I differentiate #gov20 and the so-called goverati. You don’t?

@ariherzog: @JustinHerman ariherzog: @JustinHerman #gov20 is Government 2.0. A version. An idea. A proposal. Not a collection of people. It’s like MS Word 2003 vs a developer.

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog If you personally brand yourself to be this #goverati, but say #Gov20 “isn’t about people,” who DO you want people to see you as?

@ariherzog I don’t see the correlation – #Goverati seem to be people desperate to be SEEN as leaders of #Gov20, not the actual practitioners

@JustinHerman Simple: If you look up “#Gov20” in a dictionary, I don’t want you to see me. If you look me up, you may see “#Gov20.” Get it?

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog I got it alright, a while ago – latching onto other’s ‘Pop #Gov20 buzzwords’ enough to get noticed, but not be accountable for it

@ariherzog: @JustinHerman As @adrielhampton can attest since I’ve argued with him countless times, I never liked the hashtag #gov20

@ariherzog: @JustinHerman I only use #gov20 (and terms like goverati) because folks I’m trying to connect with understand and use them.

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog I hear you – versioning the web and gov as #Gov20 etc is a shortcut to thinking that is convenient for selling services

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog And Ari, m’man, if the world is in versions, and there’s a #Gov20 above, then #Goverati is the Vista version ๐Ÿ˜‰

@JustinHerman: @ariherzog Now that its established that #Gov20 is dead & fluid innovation lives – which is stating the obvious to most – how’s the weather?

I’ve got a great replacement for #Gov20, but its kind of crazy: #Gov – because we know its evolving, and debating versions is worthless

Just following the #Gov20 hashtag, its become clear that some “needle movers” have recognized that the game/’exclusive’ playground is done
