For me, one of the most powerful memes of Government 2.0 is breaking down barriers between officialdom and the public. Like, why fight City Hall – you own it, don’t you?
In the past few days, I’ve had the humbling experience of having two friends name me as one of their favorite public servants. (As regular readers of my writings here and on Twitter may have picked up, I’m a local government employee among my many social roles.) This kind of praise goes a long way to validate what I’m trying to do with my blog, and many of my public activities. I want to help restore trust in an honest, innovative and effective public sector.
