Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

Today on the Daily Debrief: U.S. Coast Guard 2.0 with Adm. Thad Allen

with one comment

Update: We will be talking to Adm. Allen on Friday on Federal News Radio.

The U.S. Coast Guard has been one of the most interesting organizations to watch — generally well managed and yet often unafraid to try new things. And Adm. Thad Allen is jumping into the government 2.0 realm.

You can hear him yourself in his message, which he posted on YouTube.

We’re going to talk to Adm. Allen this afternoon on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris.

Anne Laurent, who oversees the blog The Agile Mind, wrote about the Coast Guard’s Web 2.0 initiatives a few weeks ago.

The message couldn’t be clearer: Coasties need to start social networking, right now! Yesterday on YouTube, in his firm, ramrod straight-arrow style, Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen ordered his entire service, and especially its leaders, to get into Web 2.0, double time.
