Click one of the links and check out the sweet tool bar they have. Would anyone else be interested in GovLoop putting up one of those?

@Stephen – I was more distracted by the recent Twitter visitors widget (scroll down)…that’s a bit creepy. I am just thinking of other sites that have that tracker..

Other wise – thanks for posting Andy, always great to learn what’s going on in other parts of the world related to gov2.0!


Funny you’re all so enthusiastic about the toolbar. Jeroen would know more about it.

Actually, we’ve been looking at the Govloop front page en like is cleanliness: less distractions and better focus. We were considering to do away with the toolbar and the Twitter followers, because it clutters up the site and takes peoples attention away: it’s just more buttons.

That was one of the conclusions of the usability study.
