Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

Most read posts for the past 7 days… and CJD recommendations

with one comment

So I launched the DorobekInsider somewhat quietly in September — I was between jobs at the time — and it has been growing well, thank you very much. Actually, thanks to you. This site has been growing by double-digit percentages week after week. So… thanks for reading.

Most read items on the DorobekInsider for the last week of October 2008:

  1. Navy out with one of the first Web 2.0 policy memos — I should note that on Tuesday, we will have Robert Carey, the CIO of the Department of Navy, on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris
  2. Dee Lee wins ACT/IAC’s prestigious ACT/IAC Mendenhall award
  3. Worth watching — A National Dialogue: OMB taps into the power of us
  4. Mintz’s daughter on The Daily Show — DOT CIO Dan Mintz’s daughter played an undecided voter on The Daily Show. Too funny!
  5. ELC 2008 — the year without Marty… but in the 10.28 update — real progress
  6. Happy birthday to… Karen Evans
  7. IAC’s ELC 2008 — Sunday night: political analyst Charlie Cook
  8. The food of ELC 2008 — Sunday night, Oct. 26
  9. What are the big issues for state and local CIOs — and Web 2.0
  10. Another Oracle buy… this time Haley
  11. Celebrating a happy new (fiscal) year with the next generation
  12. More food from ELC — Monday lunch
  13. A correction… and a even bigger congratulation to Microsoft’s Teresa Carlson
  14. USCG’s Adm. Thad Allen talks government 2.0
  15. Evans offers details on the coming memo defining the CIO
  16. Happy Halloween… by the numbers (Thanks Census)
  17. Oprah thinks the Kindle is great too!

I often list the CJD favorite items for the past week — but, to be honest, you selected most of them too…

Also culling from a week of interviews on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris… a few CJD-favorites.

Coming up this week on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris… There is a little event coming up on Tuesday that you may have heard about. We’re going to continue covering those issues… and Federal News Radio’s tracking the transition series kicks into high gear.

Other conversations in the days ahead:

  • The Navy’s government 2.0 policy… We’ll talk to the Navy CIO Robert Carey on Tuesday
  • Transition… We’ll talk to John Kaminsky of the IBM Center for the Business of Government and a blogger about the transition… what will he be watching for? We’ll talk to him Monday.
  • A Salute to the Troops… we’ll talk to Microsoft’s Curt Kolcun, who has been heading up A Salute to the Troops.
  • Oracle’s government view… We’re going to talk to Oracle exec Anthony Lye — who is also my brother-in-law. As I posted here earlier, Oracle recently had another company purchase — this time in the government world. But Lye is also been in the forefront of evolving role of customer relationship management software. Any guess who is the biggest user of CRM software out there?
  • And ongoing coverage of the election and transition… and what it will mean for you. As we say, stay tuned.
