A few editor’s favorites from the week:
* Vint Cerf: Getting to talk to one of the people who helped create the Internet was such a treat, but… he was even better then I had hoped talking about government innovation. Hear that here… and hear all of Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s Meet the Innovator series here.
* The Recovery Board contract award: We had a numer of interviews about the Recovery Board’s $9.5 million contact to Smartronics for the new Recovery.gov Web site, which created much controversy. Recovery Board Chairman Earl Devaney was on Federal News Radio talking about the process… and GSA’s acting chief acquisition officer David Drabkin, who led the acquisition process. We also spoke to Venable’s Robert Burton, the former OFPP administrator, and OMB Watch.
* Other items through the week… Energy Department’s CFO talking about the challenges in processing all those stimulus dollars… Happy Birthday Smoky Bear!… the Sunlight Foundation’s announcement of the National Data Catalog, which will pull goether all the Data.gov data — plus much more… and a good cautionary warning that we should move slowly with all that Web 2.0 hype from somebody who believes in Web 2.0…
Over all, not a bad week.
On to the third week in July…
