Gov 2.0 Expo
A Drupal.org sponsored event
Government 2.0 involves changes in policy and revolutions in technology that fit together to improve government missions - and perhaps even invent new ones. Government 2.0 embodies the spirit of transparency, collaboration, participation, and innovation. It is about empowering government employees to serve citizens better and about opening up the government into a platform that enables citizens to better help their communities.
Such empowerment happens at all levels of government, from the White House to Cabinet-level agencies like the State Department, to components of Federal agencies like the Navy's 5th Fleet that patrols the Persian Gulf, to State-level governors and representatives, to local governments innovating with cheap technology during a recession when their towns and cities are struggling.
