  • Good Afternoon. Before I begin, I want to gratefully acknowledge the slide contributions sent to Nancy Faget for this presentation from various members of the federal community, especially Beverly Godwin, the Director of USA.gov and Web Best Practices at GSA. In recent years government has employed Web 2.0 tools to improve communication within and across agencies and with their constituencies. Collaborative technologies that facilitate innovation, sharing and engagement are changing the landscape of how staff in federal agencies interact and share information. In the last few years, government agencies have been cautiously exploring putting social media to work as platforms for collaboration, to increase public engagement with their content and solve problems. You can find federal agencies hosting and providing podcasts, RSS feeds, blogs, wikis, mashups and widgets, maintaining accounts in popular photo and video sharing sites, sponsoring pages on social networking sites and even leasing space in virtual worlds. The number and diversity of implementations are growing, and lately it seems new innovative programs are being announced each week. But I don’t want to give you the impression that it’s been smooth sailing to implement all these new initiatives. There are a number of challenges that government agencies face when using these technologies. Bev Godwin, the Director of USA.gov and Web Best Practices at GSA was kind enough to allow me to use her slide that pulls some of the issues together nicely.
