Gov 2.0 Summit will bring together policy-makers, elected officials, upper management in city, state, and federal agencies, technology leadership in all levels of government, private-sector internet business leaders, contractors, and consultants to establish high-level thought leadership across the spectrum of stake-holders. The event will frame the important questions before us with the participation of government, industry, non-profits, and academia:
* How can we use technology to make government more transparent and accountable?
* How do we bridge the culture of web innovation, forged around the world and in Silicon Valley, with the culture of political innovation?
* How do we focus the power of the technology community on solving the nation's most pressing problems?
* How can Web 2.0 approaches such as crowdsourcing and collaborative development create new models of public-private partnerships?
partnerships for the benefit of both sides?
Gov 2.0 Summit will feature best practices and case studies to highlight the work of those who are already using new technology in government, as well as projects outside the Beltway that demonstrate how tasks can be accomplished more effectively and cheaply.
