How will Government 2.0 transform government?


October 29, 2009

We’re providing some “food for thought” ahead of the ICGFM panel discussion about Government 2.0 on November 4th. in Washington.

Technology analysts, IDC, recently produced a survey on Open Government and Government 2.0 in the United States. They found a higher adoption rate of Web 2.0 technologies in industry than government. The study analyzed the benefits of different Web 2.0 tools for government.
Many believe that Government 2.0 is much more than social networking and citizen participation. They believe that Government 2.0 will bring direct democracy to government.

Tim O’Reilly believes that government should be seen as a collective action. Government 2.0 enables us to “do it ourselves.” It’s about government as platform.
