What Is Gov 2.0? Complete transparency. collaboration, participation, and innovation PDF Print E-mail
Written by @gletham   
12 October 2010

We’ve all heard the term but do we all really understand exactly what Gov 2.0 is {or anything 2.0 for that matter}?

I recently stumbled onto an interesting slideshare presentation created by HP that showed off some of the findings of a recent Government IT survey. Of particular interest was the description of Gov2.0.

Simply put, Gov 2.0 is a movement towards collaboration – makes sense and actually, we see the “2.0″ suffix tacked onto many websites, resources, and the like, simply to convey [it seems] the adoption of more interactive functionality, collaborative features, and tighter integration with social media.

Some items from the research to help explain Gov 2.0:

  • Gov 2.0 is an attempt to revolutionize government and the way that government does business
  • Gov 2.0 promotes brainstorming and experimentation to achieve results
  • Gov 2.0 allows for complete transparency. collaboration, participation, and innovation by incorporating technology unlike anything before it {I like that one!}
  • Gov 2.0 is a helpful and quick way to get in touch with the government and connect employees and programs
  • Gov 2.0 gives users the choice to interact or collaborate in a social media dialogue as well as being in a virtual community

Check out this awesome slideshare presentation HERE

NOTE: The most commonly used Gov 2.0 Tools are social networks, blogs, and video
