Gov 2.0 Events :  Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase  •  Gov 2.0 Summit

Government as a Platform

Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase is a one-day event happening September 8, 2009 that previews our larger Gov 2.0 Expo scheduled for May 2010. The practical, cutting-edge efforts it highlights, married with a profound shift in thinking across the government, are helping to build what Tim O'Reilly has called "government as a platform." On September 8 in Washington DC, 24 innovators will show how this is really happening, concretely, right now, inside (and outside) government.

Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase occurs the day before the Gov 2.0 Summit, an invitation-only gathering of the leadership responsible for this agenda.
