6:30 - 7:30pm --  Presentation by Kate Walser

Full Description:

Gov 2.0 and "participatory government" are all the rage in 2011. The idea of citizens partnering with public servants has everyone atwitter and tweeting. What's not to love? Adding fuel to the fire are major announcements such as the "Improving Federal Websites" campaign by the White House and the Open Government Partnership among Brazil, the United States, and other world leaders.

Whether gov 2.0 is a passing fad or a force to be reckoned with boils done to a couple key factors – design and outreach. Throwing technology at the opportunity is great and all, but we've been there and done that and know that the only way to get users excited about your initiative is to think about them and design an engaging and thoughtful experience with a little bit of pizzazz added in. Come learn the secrets and challenges to making a gov 2.0 experience that will engage citizens.
