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

Opening Welcome

Location: Room 146 Level:

The theme of Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase is Government as a Platform. When the static Web 1.0 evolved to a malleable read/write version, it was dubbed a Web 2.0 platform. As there, so here. When citizens interact with their government, powerful things can happen. It means doing more with less people. It means breaking down too-familiar “cylinders of excellence.” It means exploiting global creativity and changing workplace models and traditional designs for carrying out missions. It means new technology. It means the power of unlocking stores of data that can better inform people about their communities, and governments about decision making. It means the power of small teams, and even the power of one.

It means change has come to America.

Web 2.0 is the industry which has shown that transparency, participation, collaboration add up to increased efficiency. Gov 2.0 harnesses this for the public good. The power of less is the power of creative destruction. It’s the power to change the world.
