Hey Ari – That was the point of my blog post entitled “More than a #Gov20 Moment,” reacting to the GovLoop/GovDelivery union. In my opinion, GovLoop’s for all of government, with Gov 2.0 being a small subset of that overall picture. My working definitions:
Gov 2.0 = transparent, open and participatory government
Social Media = tools that drive and enable the collaboration and communication that typifies Gov 2.0
Collaboration = what we do here on GovLoop, regardless of the topic
Government = Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches, Federal, state, local and international
GovLoop = a social media platform/tool that enables and drives Gov 2.0 (among many other public sector initiatives and movements), and fosters collaboration with people in and around government
Are these definitions acceptable? Do they make sense?
