In advance of next week's Gov 2.0 Expo and Summit, Tim O'Reilly asked citizens to respond to a question: "What Does Gov 2.0 Mean to You?" At least a couple handful of folks have responded, with many of the videos being posted over at GovFresh.
To encourage others to respond (because I am curious to see what you all have to say!), I'm posting mine here:
Once you post your video, be sure to share with Luke Fretwell (@govfresh) so that he can include them among the rest of the submissions.
By the way, I'd also like to point out a similar effort by a non-profit called DurhamCares, where they have collected scores of videos from citizens answering the questions: "Why do you love Durham?" and "What does it mean to love your neighbor?" It's a pretty impressive display!
Last point: I think this kind of video project is a great way for agencies to capture and highlight their employee's perspectives on a number of topics, then use the best and most relevant content for recruitment and on-boarding activities. Here's an example from the US Patent and Trademark Office. (Now if we could just get them posted on a YouTube channel and/or Facebook page to maximize the exposure of this great content...not just to replicate the content on those sites but to make it embeddable across the Web!)
Your thoughts on any of these ideas?
