Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

Vote for the title of the IAC government 2.0 session @ FOSE

with 6 comments

The Industry Advisory Council and the American Council for Technology have asked me to moderate a panel on government 2.0 — it’s free at FOSE and you can register by following this link… and, as these things always work, it needed to be done ASAP. But if you want to sound off on what we call this session…

You can read the line-up after the break — it’s a good group — and there seems to be interest. In the first 14-hours after e-mail message went out, they had more than 50 people register. If you’re interested, just follow this link and it will take you to the FOSE registration — the appropriate pass code has been filled out. (And it’s free, so…)

I’ve already received some notes asking what we will talk about — and particularly people asking if this is going to be another “what is this Web 2.0 stuff” session. We are working on the details — and I’d certainly like to hear what people want to talk about.

We may actually poll the audience as we start to get a sense as the levels of Web 2.0 knowledge. That being said, if you want to contribute to the questions, we’d love to tap your insights. We are working on it all here… add questions there… or add it right here…

Again — the details… March 11, 2009 at FOSE at the Washington Convention Center. Full details after the break…

We are proud to announce our next Executive Session featuring an all-star Web 2.0 Panel. The event will be held on March 11, 2009 at the FOSE government trade show in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

  1. It would be really great if we could have a panel on Enterprise 2.0 that is different from what we hear all the time.

    It would be better if it were entertaining too. Suggestion: Panel of 1 (Raz) talking about his philosophy on male-female relationships.

  2. I am glad to see one female on the panel. No offense, but those of us in the Beltway have heard the @ckras and @cheeky_geeky stories to death.

  3. I should add to my statement for further clarification (for other readers) that I know that you, Mr. Dorobek, did not put the panel together. So there is no ill will towards you, nor anyone on the panel.

    As someone who has put together events and is planning other events in the area concerning Government 2.0, that there are a few things I look for when bringing together the speakers for an event. Diversity is a part of those prerequisites.

  4. it’s really offensive to suggest that Mark’s and my evolving observations and work are old stories.

    It’s cheap to single out Mark and me when Mr. Dorobek talks 2.0 things for a living on the radio and Mr. Ressler often speaks about his experiences publicly.

  5. OK — with all due respect to all those involved, let’s move on. Andrea, you’re right. I did not select the panel, but they are among the bright minds out there on this subject — as are you. It’s the great thing about this topic — there are many different people with many different ideas… and many actually doing things to make actually do it.

    Generally when I moderate, I like to make sure that it is very interactive, so there were be plenty of opportunity for multiple diverse voices.

    What would be helpful is what topic areas we can cover that would actually help agencies do their jobs better. Suggestions welcome.
